Description

A set of 4 x Handprinted 1950's puzzle postcards to make any party, school trip or train trip go with a bang.

Need to know

I found an original printing block from a 1950's magazine and couldn't resist inking it up and making some thick postcards on one of my Adana 8x5 printing presses.

The questions are all pictorial and resonant of that innocent age when hobbies, the 'wireless radio' and knitting were considered a Big Night In!

I made a pile of these for some printer friends of mine and they all went a bit misty eyed at them!

The Garage Press

south London

My name is Simon Trewin, Founder and Chief Inkoholic. My prints, books and cards always start out with me scratching my head and thinking, “I wonder what would happen if I...." and then I am away!

Experimentation is at the heart of my practice - I love playing around with inks, vintage papers, wooden illustration blocks and historic metal type to a clanking soundtrack of my wonderful family of hand+foot operated presses. I also love classic typefaces, bold colours and an ever-present sense of how good prints can make a real instant impact. As you will see - I can rarely resist sprinkling a sense of humour in to the mix too!

Running through everything I do is my passion to help keep heritage crafts alive and to enjoy that sense of a historical connection to the printers, presses and ephemera that have come before me. I also truly believe in the benefits of slowing down, switching off and zoning into the deep focus that this process of discovery inspires in me.

In a world where everything is too fast, I enjoy nothing more than closing my studio door and diving into the rich and ever-rewarding world of letterpress printmaking.
