You might have seen my Oscar Wilde quote already in my first letterpress blog but this time I had more time and was able to edit the spaces between the lines and added support to some letters that were so worn down they weren’t printing. Support is added by simply adding a layer or two of paper underneath the letter on the print bed. So this was my second attempt.
I uploaded the images to society6 where you can buy prints, phone covers, bags and clocks with the image.
Here is a great short film about letterpress that will help explain the process. It’s by Danny Cooke and called Upside Down, Left to Right, a Letterpress Film, enjoy!
