73 Letterpress.

For weeks now, I've come across dozens of these beautiful and oftentimes quirky letterpress prints all over the place and just had to do some digging into their origin.

In the summer of 2009, Portland-based designer Ian Coyle took his love for letterpress and began what turned into the 73 letterpress project-- a daily thought printed and inked by hand on his old 1950 letterpress. One print, every day, for 73 days-- "some were random, some pertinent, [but] it was a great way to end each day". What a great idea.


Oh what I would do to get my hands on a whole bunch of these prints to hang and cover an entire wall in my living room with. Love, love, love.
