Specimen Project 01

The Specimen Project is a monthly challenge to produce a print showcasing & celebrating various letter types & printing techniques. Letterpress, Lino, Wood engraving & Woodcuts will be the main methods of printing.

Specimen 01, a Letterpress Print, was hand printed on a Stephenson Blake proof press, using oil based inks. For the printing of the initial yellow background colour, acrylic tinting blocks & wooden rule were used. This was allowed to dry thoroughly before over printing in black with hand-set ornaments & figures.
