My dear lovely readers,
My blog migration is complete: I have officially moved Words and Eggs over to Squarespace. Click HERE to check out my new cozy home! I’m prety psyched about it. You can find all of my previous posts over at my new blog, along with some recent posts from the past week, including a collection of vintage book graphics and Form magazine covers from the 1950s to the present day.
Sometimes I just want to bathe in vintage covers.
Is that TMI?
Anyway, for all you subscribers, please be so kind as to update your RSS feed for my new blog location:
And please Please PLEASE feel free to leave me any and all feedback you might have on my new website, which is still somewhat of a work in progress. I’m still updating my links, so please don’t fret if you were linked on this blog but you no longer see yourself mentioned on my new blog (I’m talking to you, handmade artists and awesome shopkeepers).
Also, one of the new features on my new blog is that I’ll be seeking sponsorship. If you are interested in sponsoring and/or advertising your site, services, or shop on my site, please contact me for stats and rate info:

I look forward to seeing you all over at my new home!
‘m a bit tardy for the free calendar party: I meant to post pics a while ago of this ridiculously fabulous letterpressed calendar that Cranky Pressman sent me (for free, might I add. Fabulous Twitter offers, I love thee). The calendar was designed by Northcoast Zeitgeist and printed by Cranky Pressman, a union that makes me feel quite warm and fuzzy all over because they’re both Ohio-based. And, well, so am I. Or, at least, I was until about 9 years ago. One love, Ohio and your wonderful designers and letterpressers.
So, here it is, in all its letterpressed, retro-illustrated glory. And how appropriate that it’s emblazoned with the imperative, “WORK!”. Because that’s precisely what I need to do. Stupid dissertation.
Cranky Pressman is Keith & Jamie Berger. And they are lovely, albeit cranky. Oh, and they included a promotional letterpressed postcard and some other businesscard samples of their services with the calendar. Hopefully you can’t see the drool that seeped from my awe-struck mouth in the pictures below.
So, you should really check out both Cranky Pressman and Northcoast Zeitgeist. I’m really tempted by the possibility of having CP letterpress some of my hand-lettered/drawn stuff. And to release about 5 more gallons of drool.
I know, I’m not very lady-like.
Follow Cranky Pressman on Twitter HERE and visit their site HERE. Even their social media links look letterpressed. Jesus.

Whoa. Wait until you see these vintage printing ads/cards/etc. that I just found in the Artistic Printing Album of Sheaff : Ephemera. The colors make me extremely happy.
