Carter Davis

Carter is an expert in letterpress. For his project he researched dozens of whale journals in search of repeating motifs and phrases. From them he designed a series of repeatable press blocks that he used to illustrate poems and other texts he was working with. Carter was particularly interested in how life on the open ocean shaped the mental health and psychology of whale‐men.
