Letterary Press

Someone reminded me yesterday, of one of my favorite William Shakespeare quotes:

"O wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful-wonderful, and yet again wonderful, and after that out of all whooping!" --As You Like It (III, ii)


And after hunting around a bit, with this quote in my Google search bar, I found the most extraordinary Etsy shop: Letterary Press. Just look at some of their lovely, literary letter papers.


But the well read word-worshipper who captains the Letterary Press does not limit herself to the beloved Bard. She offers beautifully crafted cards by other champions of the pen, wielders of words.


Using an old, platen press, an old cutter and her two hands of undetermined age, this artist creates delicate, literate greetings for every occasion. Because, as she notes in her profile, "You're a lot smarter than Hallmark gives you credit for."

Well put, indeed.
