Last week marked the close of my letterpress class with Jenny Wilkson at the School of Visual Concepts. I'm hoping I'll be able to find the funds to take a class again soon, but for now I can only dream about it.
The goal of the class was to create a letterpress-printed broadside, and to print enough to share with everyone in the class. After fostering my love for wood type at Hatch this summer, I can't seem to get away from it. I was lucky enough to attend the AIGA Into the Woods conference this fall, and came away with lots of inspiring phrases swirling around in my head, so I decided to make a broadside that I could hang up near my desk, to remind myself of the advice I heard from all of the amazing speakers and teachers at the conference.
And, the finished poster. I'm pretty stoked about it! Maybe I'll put it on Etsy :)
