earlier this month at redeem's holiday party (which was so fun; i basically live for redeem's events) i bought a little handmade book by local printmaker johanna mueller. i finally got around to checking out her website and blog today and was just knocked out by what i saw - her pieces are insanely detailed, gorgeously dark, ever-so-slightly creepy, and overrun with forest, fairy tale, and animal imagery. in other words: PERFECT. and totally gift appropriate. prints can be purchased online at the recently-updated johannamuellerprints.com.
