GIGI PRESS, a new Los Angeles–based letterpress company, sent me samples of their work last week, and I love their clean, modern aesthetic. Check out the boxed thank you notes emblazoned with a miniature Eames rocker:

Even lovelier, to my eye, are the monochromatic patterns, including 'Huntley,' left, and 'Mercer,' right.

Dwell Creative Director Kyle Blue recently introduced me to the diverse and inspiring work of the New York-based graphic design firm Project Projects. So I was excited to get my hands on one of their most recent projects, the book Street Value: Shopping, Planning, and Politics at Fulton Mall, part of the Inventory Books series published by the Princeton Architectural Press. I used to live near the Fulton Mall in Brooklyn, but rarely visited the eight-block shopping district. Like many newcomers I considered it somewhat blighted, owing to its cracked pavement, boarded-up windows, and prevalence of cheap-looking shops. Now it's rezoned, due for uncertain redevelopment in the coming years.
