Dedicated to long-distance love, this piece was a genuine joy to work on from original concept to final product. It was fascinating to learn how the letterpress process works as I had never done it before, and was fun to see my hand-drawn art come to life in this manner. I have certainly caught an unexpected letterpress bug, and look forward to more letterpress projects in the future.
I chose copper for the typewriters to give it an old-fashioned feel and a warm grey for the script. I love to write and I’ve always loved old typewriters, and I wanted to express what it feels like to communicate using the written word over long distances. I am happy I was given the opportunity to explore that in this piece.
