A print chronicling my father's union membership across five decades. Made on residency at Starshaped Press in Chicago, meaning I missed his actual birthday back in the UK. Completed the week before the 2016 US election. The supporting hand image was created using the reissued Alphablox type.
Due to amalgamations and breakaways, my father was a member of five unions across five decades, despite only ever joining once. Printed metal type - while discussing UK-US alliances - by Red Plate Press at Starshaped Press in Chicago.
