RISOGRAPH PRINT LETTERHEAD "DAVID TYPE 1, GOLD"

Who doesn’t want to be like Bowie? I would love to have just a bit of his charm, class, voice, ... and because of his versatility I used more than 20 different typefaces in the Letterhead.

PRINT SPECS
• Risograph print, subtle metallic gold, on acid free 175 g/m2 paper
• Limited edition of 25
• Signed and numbered on print and Certificate of Authenticity
• Size: A2 = 42 x 59.4 cm = 16.5 x 23.4 inch
• Frame is not included

For the "Letterheads" I use my father’s 1970’s/80’s dry transfer letters. I rub the letters down on paper. One by one.
I created this typographic portrait because I really wanted to use the old Letraset and Mecanorma sheets, the personal treasure I inherited from my father's design studio.
So you might say this Letterhead is a tiny tribute to the the inspiring David Bowie, to traditional graphic handicraft from the pre-digital era AND to my father’s « letterlust » genes I inherited!

The risograph print series are made from the handmade black & white originals.
Riso prints use soy based ink, prints are never 100% dry. Every print is slightly different because of this technique which makes every print unique.

Both Letterheads are based on a black and white photo by Gijsbert Hanekroot: "David Bowie performs during his Ziggy Stardust tour at Earl’s Court in London, 12th May 1973".

ME
I’m an independent photo- and typographic artist from the Netherlands. Grew up in an environment full of inspirational letter shapes. Studied Industrial Design for a year followed by Graphic Design (Art Academy ’s-Hertogenbosch). After working in this industry I started teaching. Shoot mainly interiors and villa's nowadays.
There’s an urge in me to do autonomous projects. “Product Portraits of Dutch Design” and cityscapes, more recent.
Whether I create photographic or typographic work, I want to make people happy, to make a contribution to a beautiful living space where you feel good.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by,

The ordering process was very pleasant. I think the personal attention of the seller is a big plus. After all, you still buy from a 'collection site' and do not know who you are buying from.

If the seller then gets a face that is helpful, then that makes the process much nicer. The product was carefully wrapped and had a personal card. My expectations have been exceeded.

A piece of jewellery for your house (and with every light Rembrandt looks at you in a different way!) Fine and neat delivery, recommended!
