Winter Notecards

Peace Be Notecard and mountains Greetings All,

Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains that surround us and the deep starry skies that glisten above us, we are glad to offer our new series of greeting cards for the winter season: "Peace Be."

Hand-carved mountains and stars, by Emily Hancock.

Originally commissioned by Blue Ridge Life Magazine, these cards were designed and letterpress printed in our shop from vintage wood type, metal type, and a hand-carved linoleum block. Cardstock is thick, 110lb, 100% cotton paper, in Pearl White with matching envelopes. Printed in rich blue ink on the 1914 Chandler and Price foot-powered press.

The back of the "Peace Be" Notecards.

Limited edition. $4 each, or $12 per set-of-four.

Only available online, order direct from our STORE.

Autumn blessings,

St Brigid Press

Winter Notecards, inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding St Brigid Press. May be purchased singly, or in sets of four.

Blue Ridge Life Magazine Greetings, Friends!

A note of thanks here to the folks at Blue Ridge Life Magazine, who featured us in a great article by Marcie Gates, in this month's edition!

"imPRESSive" BRL article

Gates stopped by the Shop a few weeks ago, interviewing resident poet, printer, and bookbinder Emily Hancock. We had a great time, and are very grateful to Gates and BRL publishers Yvette and Tommy Stafford for spotlighting and spreading the word about traditional printing and book arts!

Those of you in the Central Blue Ridge of Virginia can pick up a hard-copy of the magazine (which is free). Those of you who are further afield can access the complete digital version here (we're on page 30) ~

Enjoy the beauty of the days,

St Brigid Press
