Hot Mess of Letterpress
15cm x 40cm
edition of 50
Made to celebrate the three months spent travelling the USA in 2015 visiting letterpress studios, shops, artists and museums. It was printed in the three studios I have worked out most in the past year: London Centre for Book Art, Starshaped Press in Chicago and my own studio in West Yorkshire.
The texts are all quotes from people I met - words, phrases, maxims that kept coming back to me. This print is by and for those people - a copy was sent to each person who gave freely of their time to meet with me. Particular kudos goes to Joel Grothaus at Signal Return in Detroit for the idea and to Jen Farrell at Starshaped in Chicago for the title.
