The Fine Art of Stationery: Mira Aster

Today I am excited to be showcasing the work of a true artist, Anne Millett of Mira Aster who creates from her Northern California studio and is known for gorgeous stitched invitations and delicate fabric details.  Combining color with pattern and great design, her stationery is some of the best on the planet.

With an admiration for her unique vision, we began collaborating back when we were both New York City girls and since then we have joined forces on an array of projects from wedding and bat mitzvah invitations to personal stationery as well as (my favorite!) signature illustrated maps. 

She has also sewn birth announcements, table number cards, sweet little placecards and even favors (like bookmarks for Oprah's big event!)  Anne has been recognized as one of Modern Bride's Trendsetters, an honor so well deserved!  

Check out a small sampling of our projects and see more inspiring design on her website.
