A soft letterpress wash of pale pink provides the background for the bottle as well as the 'POP' of pale pink champagne. A variety of pink inks were continually added to the press to create gradations of color.* The original illustration and quote has been letterpressed in a second layer of antique gold. Finally, a bevy of curry-yellow stars has been hand-silkscreened over the top of the print.
This layered printing method allows for the best of both worlds: the bright saturation of silkscreen and the luxurious texture of letterpress. A great gift for foodies, oenophiles and print lovers alike!
Prints measure 11" x 8.5" and are printed on soft Crane's Lettra cotton cardstock. Each print is packaged in an archival quality cello sleeve, and is shipped in a thick cardboard mailer with chipboard backing for additional protection, via USPS mail.
These are limited edition prints that are signed and numbered... once they're gone, they're gone! 'Champagne' is the third in a series of four Foodie Quotes that Tartella is illustrating and printing... keep on the lookout for Vol. IV shortly!
*Please note that each print is unique, given the nature of hand-printing. If you would like more or less gradations of pink, please let me know and I will try to accommodate.
