Vintage styled travel postcards

Today I’m admiring these travel postcards by husband and wife design team A Pair of Pears. Wife and letterpress aficionado Jamie Bartlett was inspired by black and white photographs inherited from her grandfather – the mountain photo in the middle was actually taken by grandpa himself! I love the history behind this project and how their photos and type seem to blend right in. They’ve nailed the perfect combination of modern and antique.

Aren’t they wonderful? Pick up a set or two for yourself here.

We *are* using their printing presses, though.

This ain't your granddaddy's print shop.
