Thanks to Amanda Lebel and Boxcar Press, the letterpress plate has been ordered and should be ready in the next few days. Letterpress printing is a relief style of printing when the image is sunk into the paper. The negative space becomes almost embossed, while the desired image is pressed in. Boxcar provides excellent examples in their portfolio. In the meantime, I have updated the elevation for the gallery. The end installation will look something close to this:
The ink of the print will cover a 28×28″ area, the print will have a max. 2″ border. The matte will not exceed 3″ and the frame I’m hoping, will be around 2 inches. Go large format!
