Print #1, version 3, in the CTA Announcements Series

You know it well: standing on the platform, huddled under the heat lamp bracing together with strangers like little penguins away from the blasts of cold wind aiming (seemingly) straight for your face over Lake Michigan, and you hear the sweetest words known to a Chicagoan. Echoing in that charmingly flat inflection:

"ATTENTION CUSTOMERS: AN INBOUND TRAIN, TOWARD THE LOOP, WILL BE ARRIVING SHORTLY."

Joy! Rapture! Public transit!

This 8.5" x 11" black and silver poster was lovingly letterpress printed on a Vandercook SP15, featuring an original hand-carved linoleum illustration and hand-set antique wood type on French cover stock paper.
