This 8"x10" broadside is printed letterpress using my collection of wood type in four colors on thick off-white stock. (2 greens, a deep brown, and an orange (a brownish sort of orange) This is a limited edition of 66, with each broadside numbered and signed on the back. Each print is hand pulled making it an original and slightly different than the others, due to anomalies in inking.

I have more of these left, I list them one at a time. Check my shop or convo me if this one is sold.

Wood type, a cheaper alternative to metal type, has long been used to print posters and broadsides. The Hamilton Wood Type Printing Museum in Wisconsin has a lovely website with information about the history of wood type and lots of pictures (Try starting here: http:\/\/www.woodtype.org\/museum_information_about.shtml)

The broadside fits is a standard frame. Sent in a flat no-bend cardboard envelope with a protective plastic sleeve.
