Letterpress exhibition opportunity.
I have uploaded 'two letterpress print briefs' in the files section that I hope will be of
interest to members enough to do something towards.
My own prints are produced by laser cut sheets of different materials, among them hard
cast acrylics and soft leather. It would be really interesting to see other methods, like hand
cuts and polymer plates etc.
Venues like Saint Brides Print Library, (UK), The V&A Museum, (UK), The Hamilton Wood
Type Museum, (USA), would like to see work. I also plan to arrange a London gallery
exhibition in August 2007 with a private view where editions of the prints can be sold
Prints plan to be hung unframed, on wires with bulldog clips.
The deadline for submission of printed work is 1st March 2007.
Those of you who are arranging with me to laser cut your artworks will have to be ready by
the end of January 2007. `Fist' pictures should be single colour, or separated if two
colours and saved as jpegs or tiffs. I would be converting these to bitmaps. `Sound
Proofing' typographic work is easiest saved as an Illustrator file. I can also scan A3
separated artworks, (single black colours are preferable).
All the best,
