A Typophile Christmas

Design duo The Heads of State created this gorgeous 18x24 letterpress poster, inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby. The 4-color artwork is quite a feat of design and letterpress printing technique, and features some amazing vintage-style typography. This limited-edition piece (numbered edition of 300) would make an amazing present for any letterpress-lover or typophile that you love. In fact, I loved it so much I bought one for my hubby as a Christmas gift. He was equally enamored, and it's on the way to the frame shop soon!

The poster was printed by the fantastic team at Studio on Fire (the same folks who printed our wedding invitations).
