Nietzsche Letterpress Print: "Become Who You Are", Red and Black, Wood and Metal Type, and Block Print, Wall Decor, Wall Art

Nietzsche's ideas are still considered unconventional, thus not widely accepted. He knew he was ahead of his time. To honor his thinking I produced this broadside with one of his most famous sayings: "Become who you are".

The old used wood type lends small variations in color and impression, which are a part of the appeal of this hands-on process.

- "BE" printed from a hand-carved linocut. Black text set by hand in antique wood type.
- Letter-pressed manually, one by one, on my 1870's Chandler & Price press.
- Colors: warm vermilion and opaque black (variations in color occur, so each is one-of-a-kind).
- Mold-made Italian (Magnani Pescia) white 100% cotton paper, thick and luxuriously to the touch.
- Paper: 10" x 20" / Image: 7.5" x 15". Its elongated dimensions carefully chosen to hold the depth of the quote. It looks amazing when mounted and on the wall.
- Second and final edition: 100 signed and numbered (w/ pencil).

Keep in mind that each broadside is unique, therefore they will differ more or less in color intensity, because that's how letterpress is: imperfect. Some pieces are lighter, some are darker. And sometimes there are very small ink spots on the area around the printed area, because the linocut touches the paper here and there. But that is what makes the piece actually look like letterpress and not like a perfectly modern printed piece. This is the charm!
