Nestled along the brick main street in the small town of Ashland, Nebraska, Postscript is a boutique for paper, book, and lettering arts that brings a modern sensibility to antiquated processes. Focusing on high-quality craftsmanship and the handmade, Postscript carries a variety of beautiful objects, from letterpress printed cards, art prints, and decorative papers to calligraphy and bookbinding tools to hand-bound books. Postscript also offers delightfully curated gifts that elevate the beauty of the everyday, such as home office goods, art prints, wallpaper, tea towels, and gorgeously illustrated children’s books. Bespoke handmade books and calligraphic works on paper are available as well, crafted by proprietor Laura Capp.
Because instruction in book arts can be difficult to find, Postscript also doubles as a studio space, offering workshops in bookbinding, calligraphy, and related disciplines by highly qualified instructors. With an espresso and tea bar slated to open this year, Postscript will soon offer event space as well, which you can rent for your own workshops or craft sessions.
