Ragtime/Silent Film Inspired print

Ragtime/Silent Film Inspired print

15.00

At Starshaped Press, we focus all of our letterpress printing on preserving and printing with antique metal and wood type and ornaments. The print shown here is the third piece in a self promotional mailer created over the course of a year, and it features some of our beautiful type from the mid-20s, in an homage to ragtime songs and silent films. It's meant to have the feel of a nightclub/movie palace that opens on quotes from songs, slang and popular stars of the era.
It is printed in silver and transparent white on dark gray stock. Offset printed on the back of the piece is a photo of the form used to set up and print the type, so the process can be enjoyed and studied as much as the final piece. This is a great example of letterpress printing at its finest and is perfect for a type/design nerd!
The corners are diecut, and the overall measurement is 10x7". Ships flat in a clear sleeve.
