Sometimes simpler is just plain better. Alright a lot of times. Pared down to just the essentials, these Deveril invites from designer Beth Ann Seal exude such an amazing sense of clarity and calm. The lack of any superfluous design elements really serves to highlight the simple beauty of the typography and of the letterpress printing itself. In order to accommodate their multinational guests, half of these invitations were printed in German and the other half were printed in Italian. Didn’t know we print in all languages? Sure we can! More details here.

In a really cool twist (literally!) on Ben Whitla‘s original Avant design, this letterpress invitation booklet includes a cover page, an invite page, and an RSVP page that have all been grommeted together into a tidy little package. The grommet allows the individual pages to swivel open and close and a perforated tear-out RSVP postcard on the last page lets guests reply without having to worry about envelopes. Great stuff!
