today's potw combines two intricate techniques in one product.
we're talking letterpress + paper cut outs.
the intricacy, the delicate nature, the precision, it's all spot on.
|via the trendy bride by woodland paper cuts (website currently under construction)|
|custom "O" designed by bianca chang for the oprah magazine|
|hand-cut illustrations and letterpress by jaclyn co|
the image of the "O" doesn't include letterpress printing, but i was floored to learn that it was created by hand (!) using 180 sheets of paper. see more of her impressive body of work here.
i'd love to see one of these up close.
