Guest Post: Judging a Book...

Hello Suite folks – Nikki here from Cupcakes for Breakfast again! Happy New Year! Becca shared with me that she recently designed a book cover, which I just thought was a super fun project. I've loved the idea of designing book covers as a career since I saw the terribly awful/terribly awesome teen movie Down to You when I was in 7th grade. In this movie Julia Stiles leaves New York and the adorable Freddie Price Jr. behind to become a book cover illustrator in San Francisco. (He gets really sad and drinks a bottle of her shampoo – but then she comes back to him and it's all roses and rainbows.) 

On that totally random note, today I'm sharing some of my current favorite book cover designs. These would look so stylish stacked up on your coffee table or on display (and heavily bookmarked) on a kitchen shelf. Because let's be honest, we all judge a book by its cover. A great cover design draws us in and is the perfect nerdy design element for any space or surface.

1. Typography Sketchbooks – I love the juxtaposition of the two different fonts.
2. Middlemarch – This is one of the Penguin Classic books, but Becca and I have a soft spot for Victorian silhouettes.
3. The Glorious Pasta of Italy – Who wouldn't want to dive into this big bowl of spaghetti? 
4. Scarves – A mesmerizing combination of pattern and color.
5. Mark Rothko – Pops of bubblegum pink and tangerine.
6. Maps – City maps + typography = two of my favorite things in one place.
7. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty – Dark, edgy, rocker fashion.
8. Home Made – Hello juicy ripe tomatoes! 
9. Tricia Guild: Pattern – The flocked black flowers constantly inspire me to think differently about design.
10. Food Rules: An Eater's Manual – Fun illustrations on a inspiring topic by Maira Kalman.
11. Encyclopedia of the Exquisite: An Anecdotal History of Elegant Delights – A glamourous title and equally lovely intricate illustration.

Style Me Pretty Feature and A Giveaway!

Today is a very special day for Suite Paperie.  We have been featured on Style Me Pretty's New York Blog. Even more exciting, is the fact that the feature is about the wedding of Suite Paperie's very own founder, Becca Goldberg. Please bear with us for this extra long blog post, we promise it won't disappoint.

Of course Suite Paperie created all the gorgeous paper goods for the affair including the letterpress invitations, handmade escort cards, gold doily programs, menus and table numbers, but the day would not have been possible without some amazing people. 

Barb and Nelson from Hatch Creative Studio, you two are beyond talented and fun to work with. We were blown away with your creativity and outside of the box thinking. 

Jean and Tanya of Craig Paulson Photography, you ladies rock! Family portraits were fast and fun (yes, you read right: fun) and we can't seem to find a picture we're not in love with.

Les, Angela and the rest of the Northern Valley Affairs team, you guys can cook! There were nothing but raves about the food, the presentation and the friendly waiters.

Gerry, head of events at the Pearl River Hilton, you are a flawless coordinator. Everything ran smoothly and working with you leading up to the event was a pleasure.

Here are some extra goodies from the wedding.

And now for the GIVEAWAY! 

We are giving away a set of 15 custom note cards to one lucky fan.

The cards measure 3.5" x 5" and come with matching European flap envelopes lined in a matching tone or print to the pattern you choose.

Choose one of the patterns below and we'll create a set of 15 customized note cards with your name, monogram or wording of your choice. 
There are three ways to enter:
Leave a comment on this blog post telling us which pattern you'd like to win and why.

Like us on Facebook and comment on our wall about which pattern you'd like to win and why.

Follow us on Twitter and comment on our wall about which pattern you'd like to win and why.

A winner will be chosen at random (through random.org) on Friday, November 4th and will be announced right here, on the blog. Good Luck!

Bunny Love: Talia and Jethro

Forget puppy love, bunny love is what's in this season! Jethro and Talia recently got engaged in Washington, D.C. - get this- In a bunny patch! Jethro has been calling Talia 'bunny' for years and with the ultimate romantic gesture, he asked her to marry him and be his bunny forever! She said YES! We're so happy that we got to design a postcard invite for an engagement lunch being held for the couple this coming weekend. A perfect pairing of vintage and modern design, their invitation sparked inspiration for some more bunny-love goodies.Calendar tea towels with rabbit illustrations are a great and practical gift for guests, while a handmade porcelain bunny-head cake topper will certainly be a conversation starter. Printed tags can be tied to raw carrots and used as escort cards, or can be fixed to any favor for a custom favor tag. Silver rabbit cufflinks and brass bunny bracelets are a great gifts for the bridal party. So what are you waiting for? Hop to it and check out these goodies!
