Best Foot(er) Forward

I spotted these fabulously witty letterpress cards by Old Tom Foolery yesterday while I was perusing the aisles of the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco. Each handmade letterpress card features a common sentiment followed by an asterisk. At the bottom of the card, the asterisk is followed by an unexpectedly humorous footnote. While I want an entire set, my favorite is probably the above card, which reads: "Happy Birthday!*" and then "*Today we celebrate your escape from the solitary confinement of your mother's maximum-security uterus." Haha!! Brilliant. The company also has a pretty awesome poster titled: A Field Guide to Typestaches. Love them!
