I needed access to a letterpress machine – without buying one. The best deal in town is to take Contemporary Letterpress with Grendl Löfkvist at City College of San Francisco, so I did that.
It was supposed to be meant for people wanting to learn how to translate a design into a photopolymer plate, but I kinda didn’t get the message – and printed woodblocks (see last post) and some 100+ year old type cuts that I’ve had for a while.
I wanted to make postcards that evoked the past, but would be affordable (and useable) today. I chose Fabriano Mediovalis as paper for those that like to use a fountain pen to write with.
I put them up on my BiblioForge Etsy store if you’d like a set. They’re $12.00 for five.
This isn’t earth shattering design, just a bit of fun, so have some!
