My friend Ian Scott dropped around this afternoon with a wonderful loan: a collection of letterpress cuts from Prince Edward Island. There’s everything from a Kirkwood Motel logo to a signatures of various people long-gone. I printed a few this evening to send to Ian as a thank-you, and the favourite of those that I pulled out is this one:
If only for documentary purposes, I’d like to make archival prints of all of the cuts – there must be a few hundred at least – so I’ve got a new letterpress project ahead of me.
Maybe you could concoct some wrapping paper.
What a great find! Can’t wait to see the set.
I just purchased 100 chipboard coasters, found through a listing on (the excellent) BriarPress.org, with the intent of trying them out as a medium for printing these cuts.
