I love discovering new words and i feel sad that some of the most exquisite are little used in modern parlance. Its just so easy in these days of frequent communication to use words that are the most widely understood and provide the most efficient and direct way to get a message across, whilst sacrificing the delight of taking the time to be creative with language.
I've had in mind for a while that it would be fun to create prints that celebrate some unusual words that although little known, have relevance to the modern world. I don't think i'm alone in the wish to express myself in a more thoughtful and colourful way once in a while so i'm hoping people will enjoy these little wordy celebrations. Searching them out has already taken me on a most enjoyable journey of discovery and this week i've listed the first of what may turn out to be quite a large collection of printable definitions... as always i look forward to hearing what you think!
Meliorism Definition Print
Its just visible behind the words with the intention of subtly adding another dimension to the print. I'm aware that some people might not like the effect and find it distracting though... what do you think?
As with all my prints there are twenty colours to choose from. I've slightly updated the selection since i last posted it - the 'baby blue' and 'baby pink' have been replaced with 'forest green' and 'dusty rose', although i might revert to the baby colours for prints aimed at little people :)
As with all my digital typography prints, its priced £4 and available in a choice of sizes from my Print and Paper shop on Etsy.
This Is Where The Magic Happens Print
Its available for instant download in from Etsy, priced £4. I hope it makes you smile :)
That's all from me for this week. As always i look forward to finding out what's been getting your creative juices flowing over at Handmade Monday, see you there! x
