1 June 2010



I printed this invitation suite for my own wedding in June 2010.

Inspired by Victorian wedding invitations, each suite included a linoleum cut
pair of silhouettes and a miniature envelope, decorated with old metal foundry ornaments, which enclosed a carousel print from an antique copper-faced block.

The suite was hand typeset in 10pt Baskerville, 12pt Baskerville, and 24pt Gloucester metal foundry type. The announcement card was decorated with a linoleum cut decorative border. The suite was printed on a mixture of off-white and grey 100% cotton paper and ivory G. Lalo Verge De France Stationery.

Each envelope was addressed by hand in dip pen and ink, and printed with a return address on the deckle edged flap.
