Little Friends

It's funny that all the art and design crews that I'm really into lately are husband and wife teams, and today I'm loving Little Friends of Printmaking, or lfop. Based in Milwaukee and trained as fine art printmakers, their dalliance in silkscreened concert posters quickly turned into a design career. I like this print they did for Poketo (above), it was letterpressed 3 times with Stonehenge 90 lbs printmaking paper with ink carefully mixed by hand. The indentation resulted from the print process makes the print so special! It also comes with a numbered certificate which is also letter pressed and so cute! They also have an Etsy shop selling mainly silkscreened concert posters, I prefer these non band-related ones (below and above top).images: Poketo,
