Readers of Design Sponge will know that West-Coast Americans go absolutely cherry cheesecake for a bit of letterpress printing. This past year I've seen so many incredible examples which range from cute and delicate to chic and sassy. Here in England we are just starting to see letterpress printing come back into its own, as the discerning stationary-fetishist begins to shun mass-produced Paperchase tat in favour of something a bit more special.

In a Maida Vale boutique I happened upon an intriguing wooden box of work by Lucy May Schofield - a letterpress printer and book binder who, judging by the list of stockists on her website - has already enchanted the great and the good from London to California. I think her Proverb Postcards are just darling. Just wish I had someone naughty to send 'Forbidden Fruit is the Sweetest' to!
