Pictorial Webster's Notebook

A follow up to the runaway success of the
Pictorial Webster's Visual Dictionary, this
lightly guided journal features a selection
of lovely 19th century engravings to be
used for inspiration in both writing and
drawing. The textured cover with foil
stamping echoes the look and feel of the
the original book. Curated by fine-press
bookmaker John Carrera.

thanks for letting us post it !

Naughty Little People Postcards

This book contains 21 detachable postcards of
miniature scenes in which naughty little people
engage in surprising, funny, titillating or simply
obscene behaviour, and gives readers a glimpse
beneath the veneer of polite society.
The artists play with the notions of surprise
and hidden drama, inviting the viewer to take
a peek into the darkly funny depths of human
behaviour – from the silly and the crude to the
disturbing and the mysterious.
Ideal for sharing with or sending to friends,
this postcard book is an original, fun and
amusing gift for grown ups.

baby blanket restocks

we just received restocks of this lovely blanket
as well as a few more of the wool throws with
leather carriers... For over 100 years Oregon’s
Pendleton Mills have produced wool blankets,
many of which have become heirlooms passed
down from generation to generation. This crib
blanket, made of soft pure virgin merino wool
in classic buttermint plaid will continue this
tradition with enduring quality that will last
long after baby has grown. Machine washable.
32" x 44"
