"HOPE" letterpress print by Amy Redmond (Amada Press)


Year: 2021

Artist: Amy Redmond

Size: 6 x 8 inches

HOPE is a limited edition letterpress print produced as part of Hope is Action, a collaborative project by American designers initiated to inspire action, new ways of thinking, and new ways of being.

This handset metal type composition uses layering to redefine characters — mostly from the typeface Huxley Vertical — as new letterforms, creating a dynamic abstraction of the word HOPE.

The type glyphs used in this print are I U : 7

Designed, typeset & letterpress printed by Amy Redmond in 4 passes on a Colt’s Armory platen press.
