Fold-over Greeting Card – Set of 10
Printed in spring, 2017
Lined with forest green vellum stitched in the fold with embroidery thread, these letterpress cards are finished with a Suminagashi marble sash.
Suminagashi (floating ink) is a Japanese printmaking technique dating back to the 12th century. Like trying to catch a rainbow in an oil slick, you push and pull ink that’s suspended above a water bed.
Antique moveable type and border fill delicately handset in a balanced letterpress composition. Put to rest on European mold made cotton paper with deckle edges.
Imperfectly handmade and 100% human-powered on a 1890s C&P Platen Press in Toronto, Canada.
