We were invited to contribute a bike-themed print to the Chicago Printmaker's Collaborative bike show in March, 2012. Given that our family loves cycling together and are on our bikes everyday, we were happy to oblige! This print is the first collaboration with our Printer's Devil, Jo, who drew the bike image that was then converted to a linoleum cut. It is printed with two linoleum cuts and wood type in three colors on a muted stock that looks like it has faded over the years.
Measures 11x14" and ships in a clear sleeve.
____________________________________

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.
