Calling all urban gardeners to action!
This poster was a proud contribution to the 2009 Bridgeport WPA-inspired poster show on the southside of Chicago. Our theme was gardening, as we're always inspired to get our green thumbs a little dirty. We've just reprinted them so they are fresh off the press.
The poster measures 14x22" and is letterpress printed featuring some of the wonderful wood type and metal ornaments that we have in our studio. Even the subtle cityscape in the background is printed with wood type.
The colors are watermelon, orange, chartreuse and a pale tealish-blue in the background, all on a subtly cream cover weight paper. Ink colors are a little more vibrant than shown here.
Posters are shipped in a tube.


____________________________________

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.
