Christmas Sweets 2008

For Christmas 2008 we produced an edible studio gift for friends and clients.

To reflect the use of letterpress in our work, we created casts from woodblock letters of our initials S&J, and used these to make treacle toffee replicas. Toffee was chosen for its close resemblance to woodblocks, and to give people something tasty that wasn't just a regular Christmas card.

They were packaged in gold boxes with a letterpressed note-card with a print from the original woodblocks, as if printed by the toffee itself.

Overleaf are the toffee blocks in comparison to the original letters.
