This poster is a little sampler of the fine wood type specimens in our collection, and is our homage to the alphabet we love. We first printed the full alphabet in opaque white ink and then ran three different colors on top (orange, factory green and yellow). The bottom reads 'The ABCs of Wood Type by Starshaped Press', and is perfect for a child's room or for the type enthusiast.
Printed by hand with antique type on 12x18" heavy gray chipboard. Ships flat. Frame NOT included.


____________________________________

Starshaped Press is an old school letterpress shop, meaning that we focus on the craft of good design and great typography. We work strictly with antique wood and metal typefaces for printing, as well as hand carved linoleum cuts, meaning that there is NOT a heavy deboss in the paper, like modern letterpress work. Instead, we endeavor to showcase all of the flaws, inconsistencies and inherent charm of materials that printed for 50 to 100 years before we came along, and, if we do our job correctly, will continue to print when we're long gone.
