• The great thing about making a poster for a film about wood type and printing is that gross imperfections like this can be backwards-justified.
  • If you look closely, you can see the "directed by" text from below as it was transferred from the hand brayer I used to ink the type. Again, backwardly justifiable.

    Beautiful work Nick! Your print has got it all; rich transparent colours, elegantly aged wooden letters, energy, verve and even a bit of 'ghosting'... Long live letterpress!

    I need to own this poster. It really is exceptional. Can I trade my right arm for one?

    Nick, this is very similar to something I printed myself recently but I don't remember seeing this before. Coincidence, perhaps, or maybe I did see it and forgot. Very nice, anyway, you know what they say about imitation and flattery.

    I claim no ownership over red & blue overprinting (though I do use it all the time). I'm a sucker for the technique, so I say overprint away! Incidentally, I just finished a huge red & blue overprint piece at the Hamilton Wood Type Museum today. I'll upload photos soon.
