Hand Drawn’ Prints; Reclaimed Wood Frames

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Our ‘Hand Drawn Quotes’ are a mix­ture of hand-drawn illus­tra­tion art & word art. There’s six prints in the collection.

  • Ima­gin­a­tion — ‘ima­gin­a­tion is more import­ant than knowledge
  • Rock n Roll — ‘it’s only rock ‘n’ roll but i like it’
  • Dan­ger­ous — ‘mad, bad, and dan­ger­ous to know’
  • Time­keep­ing — ‘bet­ter late than never but never late is better’
  • Fash­ions Fade — ‘fash­ions fade, style is eternal’
  • Pro­nun­ci­ation — ‘you say tom-ay-to i say tom-ar-to’

Each ‘Hand Drawn Quotes’ print meas­ures 25cm x 25cm. The art­work is prin­ted onto hand-painted tex­tured hard­board. The frame is hand­made in Bri­tain using reclaimed roof tim­bers that we’ve salvaged from demol­ished Vic­torian factor­ies. We retain any defects in the wood to add to the charm & char­ac­ter of the print. These can include knot holes, nail holes, warps, & water marks. This means that your frame will be totally unique.

Decades’ Prints; Reclaimed Wood Frames

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Our ‘Dec­ades’ typo­graphy prints have, up until now, only been avail­able as large (50cm x 50cm) 100% recycled paper prints.

Now we’ve re-released ‘Dec­ades’. These new word art prints are smal­ler (25cm x 25cm) & wooden. The art­work is prin­ted onto hand-painted tex­tured hard­board. The frame is hand­made in Bri­tain using reclaimed roof tim­bers that we’ve salvaged from demol­ished Vic­torian factor­ies. We retain any defects in the wood to add to the charm & char­ac­ter of the print. These can include knot holes, nail holes, warps, & water marks. This means that your frame will be totally unique.

What Is Love?

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

To solve that riddle with just one answer is bey­ond me, for love is many dif­fer­ent and con­tra­dict­ory things.

In the early stages love is excite­ment and breath­less­ness, it is the ache of sep­ar­a­tion and the com­fort of togeth­er­ness, and it builds inex­or­ably to that moment when ‘I’ becomes ‘we’.

Later, if blessed, love becomes a stronger, less trans­it­ory thing, a found­a­tion for two lives lived as one.

It is all around us, there for the tak­ing, yet to seek it out is futile. It can­not be bought or stolen or given. It can­not be avoided or denied.

Love is the beau­ti­ful, won­der­ful, mys­ter­i­ous mor­tar that binds two souls together and I first heard its voice on the day I met you. It has been with me every moment since.

This is love.

Typographic Art On Wood

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Which print is your favourite?

These three typo­graphic art prints fea­ture dis­tressed, hand-stamped, typo­graphy. Each indi­vidual let­ter has been hand-stamped using rub­ber stamps. The stamped let­ter­ing is then scanned & posi­tioned digitally.

The word art is prin­ted onto a hand­made frame using salvaged wood that we res­cue from demol­ished Vic­torian factories. As we only use reclaimed wood, the planks used to make the back­board vary in size for each print. And we like to retain any defects in the tim­ber to add to the charm & char­ac­ter of the piece. These can include knot holes, nail holes, warps, & water marks, so each word art print is totally unique.

Coulson Macleod’s Midlife Crisis

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Mid­life Crisis’ typo­graphic wooden print

Coulson Macleod’s typo­graphic ‘Mid­life Crisis’ print is sur­roun­ded by a hand­made frame using reclaimed wood salvaged from demol­ished Vic­torian factories.

Avail­able as a stand­ard print (shown above) or you can per­son­al­ise the print with your names & a date below the text.

We think this would make a pretty good 40th birth­day present. Agree?

A Herd Of Prints

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

We wrote a blog post about the indi­vidual prints yes­ter­day, but this group shot of all six new wooden prints is rather lovely so you’ve got another look.

Each print fea­tures vin­tage 19th cen­tury zoolo­gical steel engrav­ings, which we’ve mixed with modern-day typo­graphy (as we’re prone to doing at Coulson Macleod). The art­work is prin­ted onto painted board & sur­roun­ded by a hand­made frame using reclaimed wood salvaged from demol­ished Vic­torian factor­ies (again, we do so love this old wood).
