State notebook & necklace sets- NY & NJ charity


 We have collaborated with Mimosa by m.e. here in our muggy city of Baton Rouge, LA and have created the state notebook & necklace set. So far we have created NY, NJ, LA, IL, & AL. We were making the NY version about the time that Hurricane Sandy blew through the east coast. So we decided to also make NJ and to give 50% of the sale of the NY and NJ sets to charity. So far we have given to the Red Cross and to the Humane Society for Hurricane Sandy relief. We believe we gotta take care of each other. Check out Poppytalk's post about the project.


Each set contains 1 recycled handmade notebook and state pendant with chain. The notebook was designed, illustrated, letterpress printed, and constructed by Blackbird Letterpress. The cover shows the map of the continental US with the focus state shaded. The state's name, nicknames, year it became a state, state bird and state flower (with small illustrations), capitol, and highest point are listed. Each measures 4.5"x7" and has 72 recycled blank pages inside. The pendants are handmade by Mimosa and vary in size depending on state, usually around 3/4". Each pendant is made from recycled bronze and comes with a 16" antiqued bronzed chain. All pendants have their own unique patina and no two are alike.

Want to see your state? Let us know, comment below or send us an email to blackbirdletterpress@gmail.com. If we get enough requests we'll make it! Find them in our etsy shop, blackbirdletterpress.etsy.com or Mimosa's shop.
