Five Islands

I’m in the final stages (I hope) of a year-long project to produce sets of Prince Edward Island “Terms of Union Flash Cards.” Today was the day to start printing the envelopes. I started out with too much ink on the rollers for my own good, and so in an effort to keep things moving along, I did some experimenting. This may be the favourite accidental experiment I’ve ever produced.

And here’s the letterpress cut – a loan from Ian Scott and Daphne Large – that made it all possible:
