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 30+ years ago. I finally got a chance to pull a print from it after all this time. The distressed border and damaged negative is vintage sweet in effect.
This cow sucked me in with its passive gaze.
Antique wood type and halftone blocks delicately handset in a balanced letterpress composition and put to rest on fine cotton paper.
