Wood Type & Halftones
Printed in summer, 2015
While shopping around for studio options to practice my craft, I attended a fabulous workshop at Free North Press hosted by printmakers, Justine Labine, Gideon Naf, and special guest typographer, Michael Uytenbogaart.
Celebrating a special anniversary with classic wood-type.
My sister found this halftone of a church in a downtown antique shop over 30 years ago. I got a chance to pull a print from it after all this time. The distressed border and damaged negative are vintage-sweet in effect.
The passive gaze of this cow sucked me.
Antique wood type and halftone blocks delicately handset in a balanced letterpress composition. Put to rest on fine cotton paper.
