Final Project for Letterpress Class

I went back to school this last quarter (graduated college in 1984). Enrolled in GID 92: Letterpress Printing at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, CA. The best thing to do if you think you want to explore letterpress printing is to find a class or a group. The class was great! I met good people with a mutual interest in letterpress printing. The teacher, Mike Day, was very passionate about the art of printing. Below is my final project. A spin-off of a design I had done digitally. The challenge was the large halftone taken from a photocopy out of my Grandfather’s scrapbook. I was very pleases how well the polymer plate printed. Broadside print is 15 x 22 limited edition of 15.
