Copper & Wood

Monogram Print
E. A.
Printed in the summer of 2017

♥ The bold face of the wood type paired with the delicate curvatures of the copper block reminded me of a slab of butter melting into a slice of toast.

Decorative border and background print made from an antique copper printing plate laying in a garden bed.Close-up view of an antique ornamental copper plate background and border fill.Pilot press form set-up for letterpress printing with wood type lower-case letters, “ae”.Monogramed wood-type print with the lower-case initials “a.e.” lying in a garden bed.

Antique wood type and decorative line block delicately handset in a balanced letterpress composition and put to rest on European mold made cotton paper with a deckle edge.

Imperfectly handmade and 100% human-powered on a 1890s Chandler and Price Platen press in Toronto, Canada.
