Titanic print

This print is the first in a series of self-promotional pieces for the studio, showcasing the beauty of letterpress printing with antique metal and wood type. And in honor of the Titanic's 100th anniversary, this broadside is meant to represent an advertisement for the maiden voyage of the liner, only with 100 years of hindsight. Most of the type used to print it is from the late 19th century through 1912, the year the ship sank.
It measures 5x14" and is printed in dark brown and red ink on a newsprint-esque cardstock. The back side of the print has an offset-printed photo of the forme used to print the piece, so that the process can be seen and enjoyed as much as the final print.
Ships flat in a clear sleeve.
