This abstract image is composed of metal and wood types, set by hand one character at a time. Each printed layer is designed in the moment, a reaction to the one before it, all while the ink is still wet on press.

The type characters used in this print spell the state name, “Washington.”

Designed & letterpress printed by Amy Redmond on French paper in an edition of 11, using a Colt’s Armory platen press.
