I have a love affair with all things typography. I love looking at fonts, I love art made from type, I love doodling letters and practicing my own penmanship. (Even though most days it looks like a I am channeling an arthritic person thats writing with a broken quill while riding a roller coaster.) A beautiful letterpress card makes me want to twirl around on a hill in a pinafore. I love typeface.
When I saw this on Etsy, I had to make it. Fortunately I already had two typesetting drawers in my basement. I had previously used them as shadow boxes but had become bored with the look.
I made mine for about $35 (drawer, $30, hooks, $5). These drawers are expensive and I’ve seen them for as much as $80! I’ve gotten really lucky, the two I own I purchased the first for $30 and the other for $15. Whenever I see them at flea markets I always check the price, hoping I can get them cheap and re-sell for more. I haven’t been too lucky with that.
