LETTERPRESS PRINTS

Created by hand on a mid-century Vandercook cylinder proof press, each print is
made with soy inks on high quality, recovered fiber and environmentally responsible cotton paper.
In this relief printing process, each color is created in a separate pass on the press. The reversed,
raised surface is inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image.
