First Time Ever by Seb Lester

Roberta Flack's "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" is the inspiration this Seb Lester poster. He combines elegant calligraphy with swirls and stars in beautiful homage to this classic love song. Personally, I love the black and gold version, but the white poster would be a perfect traditional wedding gift. I do have two brothers and a sister that are unhitched.

Mega Collection of Midcentury Matchbook Covers

Check out this massive collection of midcentury matchbooks shared by redditor buzzsaw_and_dynamo who also aptly dubbed it mega. Specifically the "mega album of pictures of my dad's matchbook collection". He has taken beautiful photographs and nicely arranged the different artwork on the inside and outisde of each cover into a single image. Below is just a sample of what you're in for. Be warned! There are 136 images in the set. 

2016 by Julide Belen

Julide Belen is a talented letterer and designer in every right, but her quilling work simply blows me away. I love that she takes this Renaissance era technique and creates completely modern, clean pieces. Her 2016 quilled numbers are for a graduation program, but I think they are perfect to celebrate the end of 2015 and the beginning of a fresh year. Awesomely, she shares in progress shots over on her Instagram if you're into that.

Uraniae by Hajnalka Illes

Even though the days are finally getting longer, the night skies dominate and extended hours mean lots of star gazing. In the spirit of celebrating the night skies, I'm sharing Hajnalka Illes' Uraniae Observatory series. She has created a gorgeous poster, business card, trio of booklets, and more. Her project description explains "the observatory that only existed for a short period of 37 years on top of the most famous of hills, Gellert in Budapest." Her font combinations work perfectly with her illustrations and layout. My favorite is the large silk screened poster on black.
