gateway arch

Hello friends!

In honor of my brother's wedding in our hometown of St. Louis this weekend, I wanted to share this fantastic print by The Firecracker Press, a graphic design studio and letterpress printshop in STL.  I think I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the Arch, and love that it welcomes me into the city and bids me farewell on my roadtrips between St.Louis from Indy!

This print is a re-make of a drawing from the 1960s made during the construction phase of the Arch.  I'm really appreciating the "Arch" lettering and fun illustration.  If you haven't been in the spaceships/pods/elevators to check out the view from the top, put it on your itinerary for your next trip to the Lou!

Hope your weekend was the best!
