Limited Edition LOVE Print

With Valentine’s Day coming right soon, the love is definitely in the air everywhere! and I LOVE it :)

I printed this very limited edition of LOVE print, which will be featured in an upcoming book… (more about that later)

I love overlapping effects that letterpress can do so I wanted to try that — first, setting up letter O and E:

Adjusting the placement… with consideration about the letter L and V later…

and print the letter O and E.

Now, setting the letter L and V to overlap the letter O and E:

Test print without the ink + adjusting the placement…

Let’s see…

aww I love the shapes and colors that they make each other!

Still adjusting the spacing until I am happy…

Here is the final product! Limited to only 25 prints!

I hope you like it :) xo Hijiri

Absolut Brooklyn

When I wait for subways lately, this billboard always makes me look: Limited edition Absolut Brooklyn — A Spike Lee Collaboration. The bottle is in the middle of the brownstones, illustrated inside (that’s the bottle design!) and

on the stairs, it says:

“Brooklyn-Goodlookin’ Bucktown Breuckelen Brooklyn in da house”

I need to buy a bottle to keep! Oh and perfect gift from Brooklyn, also ;)
