Ryan Todd

A set of four letterpress coasters designed by Ryan Todd for New Found Original. Each design in the set is letter-pressed by hand onto heavy stock in rich complementary colors. I love them for their unique illustrations. Did you notice something weird about these coasters? Look again, "the duck's beak appears to be tied on with string, the swift looks as if it's been shot down by enemy aircraft but is going doing in a blaze of glory; the owl is a lesser spotted three-eyed, double beak owl, and the parrot appears to be engaging in a spot of topsy turvy meditation". A gift for a bird-lover or someone who appreciates bold graphics.

Have a great weekend!
