Title: A Broadside!? (2001)

Artist: Amy Redmond

Size: 8.5 x 11 inches

This print was made during the week I house sat and had full run of Stern & Faye, Printers. I went on an ink bender, exploring their vast collection of vintage ad cuts and catchwords, and in the process this story came to life.

Printed with handset metal type and ad cuts using a 10×15 Gordon Oldstyle Press at Stern & Faye, Printers.
