The Last Bookstore


Visiting a Los Angeles Icon

Our sales rep Jan Pacursa is proud to share the results of his partnership with one of his clients, The Last Bookstore. Housed in an abandoned bank, It is one of the largest independent bookstores in the world.

Situated in the heart of the Historic Core neighborhood, the store is an institution of downtown Los Angeles. The Last Bookstore buys, sells, and trades books, graphic novels, and vinyl records; it hosts several public events each week, from book signings to open mike nights.

Ellen’s Silkscreening has been outfitting The Last Bookstore’s staff and filling its apparel shop with shirts and bags since 2014.

Environmental Activist Berta Caceres

Remembering Environmental Activist Berta Caceres

We recently had the opportunity to print these beautiful bandannas and shirts celebrating the life and work of the incredibly brave Honduran environmental activist and indigenous leader Berta Caceres; the one year anniversary of her assassination was March 2nd.

The bandannas and shirts were commissioned by documentary film maker Sam Vinal.

A link to a short film Sam made about the ongoing political struggles in Honduras is below:

A St. Patrick’s Day Greeting

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song.
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all the year long.

“Looted”, An Amazing Story

Ellens printed this beautiful image on shirts for our customers David Crocker and Craig Gilmore.

The shirts are to commemorate the return of a painting they owned, by 17th century Dutch master Melchior Geldorp, to the National Museum, Warsaw.

They are sending them to Poland as a symbol of the pride they take in this restitution and in remembrance of the terrible acts committed during WWII.

Below is a link to the full story, published in the Los Angeles Times last December.
