Betty & Pies

"Betty & Pies", a beautiful little slice of rubber-stampishness found on the inside lid of an "American Sign Printer" set from 1935.

I suspect that I have a habit that I share with a lot of other printmakers out there; collecting old printing toys and tools. You can never have too many things that can take ink and make a mark on paper. I'm not sure how many rubber stamp alphabets I own.

This one's missing the J and K, but it has a wonderful star and ampersand, and the lid of the box is enough to make it a treasure. That ink pad is pretty nifty too.
