Title: Numb’r Crunch’r (2002)

Artist: Amy Redmond

This print all started with the lovely figure 5, & the story grew from there. Designed & letterpress printed from handset metal & wood type, with a vintage halftone image of an unidentifed gentleman I’ve named Jim-Bob. Printed during my apprenticeship at Stern & Faye, Printers using a Vandercook 4 press.
