This piece was created using existing wood type, rules and other ornaments that I found in the print shop. The landscape was built as the items were selected.

About the Project

The Cranky Pressman letterpress print shop where I created this print is full of various printer’s items such as wood type, shapes, rules and pictorial items called line-cuts. These materials are very old and were tools of the trade routinely used by printers in the 19th Century up until the mid-20th Century when the methods became obsolete.

I enjoy looking at these bits and pieces and this gave me the idea of building an old-timey landscape using just these vintage typographic materials.

Print Details

  • An edition of 6 prints in total was made.

  • Print Size 14”x9”. Image Size 9”x4.125”.

  • Paper Stock, White 110 lb. Uncoated

  • Linoleum Cut

  • Single-Color Print in Black Ink

The rust-brown color and the green color were each printed twice to get the desired overlapping effect. So technically this makes this a 7-color print, pale blue, x2 pale greens, x2 rust-browns, metallic silver, and black.
