Bargain Huntress: Exclusive Discount on Tradition-Rich Hebrew-Alphabet Posters

The Bargain Huntress has a colossal interest in typography; I consider it one of the most fascinating and evolving art forms. Typographic art inspires and reveals stories and history. Just like any picture or painting, typographic art is worth a thousand words.

I once featured the haunting typographic embroideries from Hugo & Marie. Today I introduce you to a small -- but expanding -- collection of Hebrew-alphabet posters created by Tsilli Pines, a Jewish artist and designer. She merges traditional art forms with modern design, and intertwines her family's stories with work on her site, Alef Betty.

"I was aiming to design a set of posters that people would want to hang in their homes today, so that another generation could grow up looking at these letters," Pines writes on her blog. And those wishing to own a set of her posters are in luck: Pines offers RentedSpaces readers an exclusive discount.
You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate Pines' desire to share her culture's history and the detail that went into creating the posters. She designed two of the alphabet posters using letterforms based on typefaces from the Hebrew canon, and she also drew inspiration from contemporary Hebrew typographer Oded Ezer.

Pines prints each poster with soy-based ink on recycled chipboard.

The alphabet posters are all made in Pines' workshop in Portland, Ore., and sell for $24 each. They come in two color palettes: blue and red. And if you buy a set of three posters in the same color, you only pay $58 -- a great price for art that celebrates traditions and history.


Alef Betty offers our readers an exclusive discount just in time for Judaism's Pesach Sheini (Second Passover) on April 28 -- a day that gives us a second chance to succeed (Bargain Huntress included). In celebration of current and future accomplishments you can get an exclusive 10 percent off all Hebrew-alphabet posters until May 15, 2010. Use offer code RS2010 at checkout to receive your discount. Thank you, Tsilli!
