UK-based designer, Stephanie Baxter, created a hand-lettered series of prints, titled “We Go Together Like…“, based on a combination of items that we love to consume. Check out her lovely prints below, and purchase your very own copy of these and her other AWESOME creations from her Etsy Store.
What are some of your favorite combinations? I love vinegar and french fries, while some of my friends love Wendy’s frosty with french fries…weird…right?!?
p.s. Make sure to check out her entire portfolio…she’s done some really creative and truly inspiring work!

Flipping through the September issue of HOW, I came upon a brief write-up about Vahram Muratyan’s blog, Paris vs. New York – A Tally of Two Cities. In his visual comparisons, Vahram artfully captures the iconic rivalry between the two cities, in what he describes as “A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through New York”. The illustrations are available as prints, collected into a book, and a beautiful box of postcards. Check out some of my favorites below, and explore the blog for many of the other fantastically witty illustrations.
* You can WIN the box of postcards by entering the designer sweepstakes on the HOW site by September 26, 2012. Good Luck!
What are Dire Warnings you might ask? They are a terrific series of prints created by Diane and Madeline Tompkins, with bits of wisdom they’d heard from elders or read in books—and according to the ladies, these old sayings might just provide a bit of wisdom for today’s sticky situations! The original art pieces (Diane cut the silhouettes and Madeline did the hand-lettering) were created for a Halloween Show in the Kansas City area, and since they did so well in sales, the duo decided to create a small run of letterpress prints for their Etsy store ($8 each). Check out their excellent work below and browse their store for more hand-lettered, paper cut designs and letterpress art prints.
Evajuliet (Eva – a graphic designer, and Juliet – an antique tabletop letterpress) designed a series of inspirational vintage typography prints to brighten up your day and decor! The prints are available in a few sizes in the Evajuliet Etsy Store and are a fabulous reminder that everything is going to be alright and the best is yet to come :)
Love You Daily is a site with a simple concept—create daily, original pieces of art work surrounding the theme of love.

If you have Tumblr definitely start following the site and peruse all of the wonderful designs for some lovely inspiration.
Wilhelm Staehle, the creator of the incredibly sarcastic and wildly clever Silhouette Masterpiece Theatre illustrations, is rather a man of mystery. Not much is known about him—besides his love for peculiar silhouettes. If you take a look at the bio page on his website, you will know exactly what I mean! But his work is quite captivating, and speaks for itself. Below you will find just a few of my favorite pieces (including the Specimen Sheet of Type Designers), but his website offers an abundance of cleverness—so check it out! If you love the prints, most of them are available for sale at The Bazaarium online store for $40.
