amelie mancini

Left Field Cards would be a great Father's Day gift....

I meant to write about Amelie Mancini a while back. The Brooklyn artist, originally from Lyon, makes baseball cards and lovely linocut prints, all with an offbeat yet pretty sensibility. Her bizarre injuries series has been on the magnet board above this very screen for months now. But somehow she slipped through the cracks. Mancini just turned up on The Makers, and the studio photos and her sweet comments about creativity, New York City, and baseball reminded me of why I liked her so much in the first place. Also, she encloses a sweet little handwritten note with every shipment.
