Keep Your Eyes Open
This is a limited edition letterpress art print created with vintage wood type and printed by hand in Detroit on a Vandercook 3 press.
The text was written intuitively while I designed the print on the press. The piece began as an inspirational quote to hang in my daughter's room, and became a list of things I wished I could tell my younger self.
This edition is available in two colors. Printed on French’s 140 lb paper in Night Shift Blue or Pure White, with split fountain gold and silver ink. Due to the handmade nature of printing and the vintage press, the edition varies and the texture of the wood grain can be seen in each print. There are 20 available in each color, the paper thickness allows for a tactile, debossed impression, or “bite” in the paper.
