Tenugui Book Covers

Tenugui books

I also saw something cool while I was at Kinokuniya — these special edition of 15 books with tenugui pattern covers! Too cute!


Baby Crochet Project

While I was on vacation, I started a little crochet project for our little baby… :) I got this crochet pattern book at Kinokuniya a while ago, I’m trying to make the dress on the cover in white… we’ll see how it’ll turn out!

LETTERPRESS Book -my pages-

I have mentioned that my letterpress work and my studio has been featured in the Japanese letterpress book before — I have received my copy shortly after and I have read cover to cover… ohhhh I LOVE it! Miki-san did such an amazing job, I was so very impressed. It’s all in Japanese so it might not be for everyone in the world… but if you can read Japanese or have a family and/or a friend who can, or if you just like looking at Japanese letters and/or photos, I highly recommend getting this book! :)

but really, I can’t even believe it to be included here with so many amazing letterpress folks in this book. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Just wanted to share my pages… that I’m so proud of :)

All of my alphabet greeting cards are featured! Yay! (some are still work in progress… it’s completing soon, though!)

LETTERPRESS ~Select Designs from San Francisco and New York

I have a very exciting news to share… my letterpress work and my studio has been featured in this new Japanese book called “LETTERPRESS ~Select Designs from San Francisco and New York” — if you are in Japan, it’s going to come out this week on August 14th!!! ((If you are in outside of Japan, you should be able to pre-order from Amazon.com or it’ll be available at your nearest Kinokuniya or any Japanese book stores in 6 months or so, I heard))

I think I’m getting a copy soon, I will share some of the pages when it comes! The author, Miki-san is an amazing writer & person, I enjoyed meeting with her and showed her my work and my (new) space. She also took a lot of photos for the book, I can’t wait to see and read everything! She is covering a lot of amazing letterpress studios in SF and NY, I can’t even tell you how honored I am to be a part!!! Thank you so much!!!
