Star ‘Snowfall’ Winter Card – Original Hand Printed Card
Original Print: Typeset Letterpress Stars with letterpress text on the back, printed on beautiful mold made paper. Inked by hand & hand-printed on my old Press.
Image is made from Metal Moveable Type: Ornamental Stars typeset incrementally in 6pt – 36pt.
My challenge was to simultaneously achieve, symmetry & asymmetry in this restricted grid design. My deliberate intention, in order to represent the randomness of falling snow whilst considering symmetrical geometry of individual snowflakes. Take a good look & you can see it (& other things if you keep looking).
