"A series covers of classic books. The books were leather bound and the design was then foil stamped in two foil colors onto the full jacket and spine. This is probably my favorite project of all time and thanks to Jo the interiors are as beautiful as the covers. Each has marbled endpapers, painted page edges and matching ribbons and headbands."

Jessica Hische is a letterer, illustrator, typographer, and web designer. She currently serves on the Type Directors Club board of directors, has been named a Forbes Magazine “30 under 30” in art and design as well as an ADC Young Gun and one of Print Magazine’s “New Visual Artists”. She has designed for Wes Anderson, McSweeney’s, Tiffany & Co, Penguin Books and many others. She resides primarily in San Francisco, occasionally in Brooklyn.

Notebooks Covered In Embroidered Anatomy, Holograms, And Floral Patterns byFabulous Cat

FabulousCatPapers aka Chara on Etsy

There’s quite a quirky and creative shop on Etsy called Fabulous Cat Papers that has a wide range of beautiful handmade notebooks with intricate embroidery. Chara, the Athens-based creator behind the shop, uses unconventional images to breathe life into her embroidery: from blood vessels, skulls and holograms to webs, carcasses, and mathematical formulas.

Max's new graphic novel, Vapor, is absolutely gorgeous. From the mesmerizing cover designed by our in-house superstar, Tony Ong, to the beautifully laid out panels and artwork, to the evolving journey of the philosophical protagonist, Nick, this book is just plain impossible to put down!

We are so pleased to bring more of this Spanish cartoonist’s work to an English audience, with impeccable translation done by Carol Gnojewski. Do yourself a favor and pre-order it now!
