Anamiro Greeting Cards

I think bookstores have such a great selection of greeting cards.
In fact most of the cards I buy are from bookstores.

Yesterday I purchased this card from Berkelouw.

Parachute gift card by Anamiro.

It's not a letterpress card; it looks screen printed, and is by the Aussie duo Anamiro.
They have had a lot of press including Paper Runway, Frankie and a bunch of blogs, dating as far back as 2008! Sometimes I think I must be living under a rock! 

This particular range of cards are like little pieces of art!  (See the whole range here.)

Which made me wonder....
I wonder if Anamiro would be interested in working with us in the future to design a one-off letterpress greeting card... Its an idea I have had rolling about in my head for a while; Collaborate with 4 designers/illustrators per year - They design, I letterpress print the card. At the end of the year we collate the art work and produce a calendar showcasing these little works of art and exposing the talented people behind them.

mmm...  :)
