one for sorrow letterpress print

by Grace Bonney

good morning! i thought i’d start today with a modern spin on a classic nursery rhyme. this “one for sorrow” print from new north press and richard ardagh was inspired by a classic story about the superstition surrounding magpies. according to the nursery rhyme, the number of birds means something specific, but i think the same could be true about the print. owning one will make you happy, but owning two or three to share with friends would be even more fantastic. click here to check out the poster in detail and order online. “one for sorrow” is part of a limited edition of 150 (appx 25 x 35 inches), so if you’re interested be sure to order soon. thanks, richard!
