Description

This work riffs off of the symbol for the international red cross and suggests art as medicine and calls for the preservation of artistic endeavour at all cost.

Edition of 15 Only - Price for unframed/mounted print from the edition.
Please note: the print in photograph is an artist proof and has already sold.

Printed using 8 layers of ink. Starting with Black, 5 layers of white, finishing with 2 layers of red. This gives a very fine hairline drop-shadow within the 1920’s cameo or white letter wood type. The white of the actual letters you see is the paper stock. This was a very clever trick of old printers, as letterpress white inks is quite transparent otherwise.

Hooksmith

Hooksmith Press

Leytonstone, london

Typographic prints made lovingly by hand, using age old and rare letterpress equipment from the vast and revered Hooksmith Press collection–some nearing 200 years old.

The wordsmithing is as varied as the typefaces. Hooksmith Press produces both solely text-based prints, and text accompanied by imagery (from antique advertising/pictorial plates and bold colour blocks and borders). Subjects range from, fun poetic-witticisms, nostalgic & contemporary observations/sage advice or the just plain obtuse.
