I want to post something unique for tonight, and I dig into my "sources" folder, there you can found thousand and thousand images, old papers, textures I have scan over the years... I was looking for something for the vintage section... And found this stamps catalogue, so I want to share the story behind it...
 
I guess it was in 2002 or 2003, I lived in middle of France, Clermont-Ferrand... I need to do a stamp and someone tell me this guy was the best. His shop looks like in Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. At this time, letterpress hasn't made its coming out yet, so, seeing old metal fonts was something for me... This guys keep all the stamps he had composed for clients, and told me the shop was in his familly for generations... I ask him if I can shoot the shop, and as I was really passionate, he shows me this old catalog of stamps, and he offers it to me, saying it would be in good hands ! And it is !
 
So, if you look each page in details you may found compositions that I used for wall stickers... If you found which one, email me the sticker name and I will gave you a special discount code ! Work only for the first right anwer !

Big travel for the wood products / -20% promo

posted in Shop updates  at 3.25 PM from Ubud, Bali / Indonesia listening The beatles White album
It is time for wood products made in Bali to take the boat ! As I plan to move back to France later this year, the products need to leave before me for their long trip over the seas ! So, they will be on sale only until march 7th, after that they will be in "standby" until I organize myself to restart the sell again...
 
While we werre in Singapore last week, we have fun with my wife shooting some letters and coasters in our nice vintage hotel... It is something to arrive at the breakfast with a set of strange wood letters and to put them everywhere, I love to look like a crazy family !

The Collection 1 : recycled teck color wood
