Sarah Nicholls Art, Prints, & Illustration

Brooklyn, New York · 145 Sales

Announcement   Welcome! I am a Brooklyn printmaker, designer and illustrator specializing in bold relief prints, obscure historical facts, and memorable ephemera. All of my work is hand printed in limited editions, designed, written, and illustrated by me. I print letterpress on antique machines from the industrial era in the non profit printshop and bindery I helped run for twelve years, from handset metal type and hand carved linocuts and woodblocks.

My work is influenced by the history of print, science and history, nature and language. I believe in reading made slow, bright colors, and good humor. I have written a collection of self-help aphorisms, I publish a series of informational pamphlets, and I am currently working on a field guide to extinct birds.

You can learn more about my pamphlet series, Brain Washing From Phone Towers Informational Pamphlets, here:

You can read more about extinct birds and field guides here:

You can see other work here: http://www.sarahnicholls.com

Do you have an interesting project in mind? Contact me at sarah [!at] sarahnicholls.com.
I welcome commissions and collaborations.

About

Words. Books. Pattern. Birds. Science.

I am a visual artist who makes pictures with language, books with pictures, prints with type, and animations with words. I work with found language and metal type, combining image, visual narrative, and time. I am inspired by the history of print, the history of science, nature, reading, and vernacular typography. I have written a parody collection of self-help aphorisms, publish a series of informational pamphlets, and I am currently working on a field guide to extinct birds.

I learned to print letterpress over a decade ago at the Center for Book Arts in Manhattan. That's where I worked for twelve years, running programs, mentoring artists, and teaching people about the wonders of the printed and the bound. I recently left that position to concentrate on my own work, and I am so excited to be able to share my new prints here in my shop.
