{ letteria: how do I love thee? }

let me count the ways...

: : :

I first discovered the letterpress loveliness of designer Christa Schumacher-Schwarz, of Letteria, through her captivating photos on flickr. I was immediately drawn to the clean, lustrous feel of her images, which so eloquently capture the Swiss influence of her Zweidlen, (near Zurich) Switzerland based studio. 

To be honest, you don't have to do much for me to go ga-ga over letterpress goods-I love just about anything letterpress.  I'm sure you'll agree, however, that the cool sophistication of Christa's designs is extraordinary. 

Christa compares the experience of starting her endeavor and acquiring and using her letterpress for the first time to 'winning the lottery'. { Lucky us that she went for it! }

The process...

You can't help but be insipired by the passion in her work...

and charmed by the cheerful images that welcome you to into her home...
