My weirdly cheery robots, hand printed in red & black on double pages from an antique book, with a Japanese toy printing press called a Gocco.

This series of prints has been featured in Pikalands "Gocco" themed Pika Package; at Fleeting Pages, a pop-up art & book shop taking over a former Border's bookstore in Pittsburgh; and at Sweet's Workshop's second annual "My Goodness, My Gocco" exhibition in Sydney, Australia.

This is not a mass-produced reproduction.

Each silkscreen print is unique, hand-printed directly on antique paper. Gorgeously typeset, the book pages provide as a bonus fascinating information about a subject beginning with the letter O or P, a section of our alphabet that includes such interesting words as Opinicus, Oleomargaine, Palinode, Padang and (very apropos to this project) Palimpsest.

This one features text about Organs (as in Arcade Fire, rather than spleens or something). You'll also learn about Organic Sensations (which does have more to do with things like spleens); Organista (a bird); Organogeny; Organolography; Organology; Organolyricon (the aforementioned musical group probably has one of these, too); and Organo-Metallic Bodies. This last entry is cut off just as it's getting interesting.

My illustration depicts enigmatic, luggage-carrying space travelers, and their detached, puzzled curiosity as they leaf through remnants of our civilization.
