Margins is the work of Jeremy Rendina, an artist and printmaking living and working in South Pasadena. You may recognize his moon calendars from previous Renegade Craft Fairs; his silkscreen printed poster of the moon cycles of each month has been a popular feature of many of our fairs. We’re excited to have Margins as a participant in our Winter Market in Los Angeles this weekend!
All the prints, cards, and posters in the Margins collection are printed by hand, which provides a richness of ink that is unmatched by digitally printed images. Jeremy is dedicated to using the finest materials, and in his own words, he makes “every effort to work in accordance with sustainable printing practices that support the well-being of all living creatures and the greater ecological system of which we belong.” Margins is a unique company in that it draws on the natural world and numerous spiritual traditions, while respecting those places and traditions through his production choices.
Margins offers letterpressed cards and posters in addition to their screenprints. These astrological sign cards are richly detailed, and would make a lovely birthday card for any time of the year.
This snowflake card is another Margins creation, collaged from scans of snow crystal micro photographs taken in the 1920s by Vermont farmer, Wilson Bentley. Individual snowflakes were caught on black velvet and photographed before melting to create a delightfully detailed holiday card.
Above you’ll see a peek into the Margins studio in South Pasadena. Those vintage moon posters provide inspiration year-round.
