The print was created using antique wood type from the early 1900s and black ink. The wood type (wooden letters shown in the 4th photo) is hand-set on my mid 20th century printing press and inked with a brayer. Then each sheet of paper is pulled throught the press, one at a time, to create a perfectly imperfect print. The medium weight paper is acid-free and measures 11” x 17”.
Each print varies due to the nature of the letterpress process. Ink impression on the piece you receive may differ slightly from the picture, but each is unique and beautiful.
This piece was printed on my Showcard Model B press. Each poster is signed on the back.
