Various Letterpress Prints and Type Studies

Experiments with handset metal and wood type.

Wood Type

I experimented with wood typography. I chose the quote from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass and decided to try different ink treatments with the type. All type is handset in a traditional letterpress.

Metal Type

For this project, I handset part of Alexander Pope's poem, Eloisa to Abelard. I created simple imagery for the quote with rubber based ink.

Various Prints with Wood Type

This was a purely experimental project where I explored placement and sizing of select letters, symbols and shapes.
