Letterpressed Goodness

This is EXCITING: my friend Themba and I received a grant from the City of Olympia with which we can run creatively wild!

To gather inspiration, I started taking a look-see around the interweb, and found these beautiful pieces, which are on display RIGHT NOW at the University of Puget Sound's library gallery. Behold the Feminist Broadside Series, designed by Chandler O’Leary of Anagram Press and printed by Jessica Spring of Springtide Press:

Beauty! The pink and orange print is still available right here.
