These Are a Few of Our Favorite Sites

It’s a busy day today at Dauphine Press, we’re wrapping up the week and heading out to spend time with our mothers far and wide.

To end a beautiful week, we wanted to share a few of our favorite websites from the standpoint of inspired design and clever content. In no particular order:

French General This Los Angeles purveyor of rarified textiles, notions and millinery finds makes us feel like we’re at a Parisian marché aux puces. Can’t get enough of their website? They now offer workshops in their Los Angeles studio as well as New York {at Tinsel Trading} and Stillwater, Minnesota. Can’t get there? Their decor, jewelry, entertaining and craft books and their lovely range of stationery is available through Chronicle Books.

Astier de Villatte This site has been around since 2007, but it continues to visually enrapture and inspire us. Transport yourself to the atelier of this gorgeous Parisian porcelain artisans on the rue Saint-Honoré. Pick a card, any card…

Castle in the Air A true gem of a store on Fourth Street in Berkeley, California, this whimsical website invites you to take a stroll down a medieval lane with stops built in along the way. If you can’t get there in person, you can still experience some of the magic through their online portal.

Words at Play The companion site to the 2004 Adobe book Words at Play, a
typographical tribute by Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich and Matteo Bologna, written by Alyson Kuhn. Just for fun.


Bembo’s Zoo Another online treasure by Roberto
de Vicq de Cumptich
, the companion site to his abecedary book which he made as a gift for his child. Turn up the sound on your computer to hear the animals.


Jessica Hische Brooklyn designer and illustrator whose hand-lettering work is exceptionally compelling and gorgeous.
