The Mueller Airport air traffic control tower was built in 1961 and has been a beloved icon of Austin's city skyline. The old airport closed in 1999 but this gorgeous tower was brought back to life in 2010 by the Mueller development. The decades-old tradition of the lighting of the tower began again with a new "Noel" sign commissioned in 2006, and the tradition continues on.

I used to drive by this tower almost every day, so I felt the need to capture yet another tower by way of letterpress.

1 folded card - 4.25 x 5.5 (A2)
printed in pale blue, blue, yellow and gray on natural white 100% cotton stock

About: These cards are carefully hand cranked, one at a time, on my vintage Vandercook proof press. My house paper is specialty milled #118 luxurious 100% cotton stock, which is made from cotton linters left over from the textile industry. It is archival, acid free, recyclable, biodegradable, and elemental chlorine free.

Giving: Presse Dufour donates a portion of proceeds to organizations such as the Gulf Coast Restoration Network, as well as many local organizations in New Orleans.
