I Like Letterpress
Hello! It's a gloomy day in Wellington so i've used the opportunity to stay inside and spend time doing one of my most favourite things, printmaking! I thought I'd give a little insight into the process I use to make my letterpress prints.
I have always had an interest in letterpress printing, but when I did a day course at Wai-Te-Ata press at Victoria University my interest became an obsesssion. This CHIRP print was the first letterpress print I created. I was hooked on the amazing detail you can achieve and the distressed, almost galactic effect of the worn woodtype letterforms.
I have a pinterest board with letterpress inspiration if you're on pinterest check it out: http://pinterest.com/paperbirdsoc/letterpressy-things/
