Designer as Author
Project Description:

This is my first letterpress ever, something I may be doing for some time to come provided the opportunity & money is there. At first it felt too foreign for me to really enjoy the process right then and there, but after just a few days and seeing the finished result it was really interesting. Definitely learned a lot about type, especially how it was handled in the 1400s when that kind of press was used.

Anyway the project was about designers being authors. Not only illustrating the story but actually creating it. I think it was supposed to help us consider just how much wording can change a story. Especially in a six word story, you really need to really think about which words you choose to tell it. Anyway it was fun, and I think letterpressing may be something I'll continue working with.
