This is a quote I stumbled upon from Helen Keller, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing". How inspiring is that? Makes me want to go out and LIVE!

This print was created using antique wood type from the early 1900's and green ink. The medium weight paper is acid-free and measures 11 inches by 17 inches. Each piece of type (carved wooden letters, as seen in the last photo) is hand-set on my mid-20th century printing press and inked with a brayer. Then each poster is pulled through the press, one sheet at a time, to give a cool vintage look.

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.

Please note, the frame is NOT included in this listing.

This piece was printed on my Showcard Model B press. Each print is signed on the back.
