Letterpress Giveaway

The Vista Sans Wood Type Project Book needs our help. In addition to being an amazing, multidisciplinary collaboration between many talented artists, the project highlights strategies for creating and experimenting with moveable wood type. In fact, Ashley, Tricia, and the project participants offer a glimpse at the future of wood type.

Making type and printing books are expensive endeavors, but also worthwhile. As further incentive to support The Vista Sans Wood Type Project Book, I am offering 5 free copies of my “Time Flies” print. This 6 x 9.5 inch broadside was letterpress printed using vintage, handset wood and metal type on French Frostone (RIP). To win a free copy (I’m even paying the postage!), be one of the first five to:

1) Tweet your support of the project with the hashtag #VSWTPbook

2) Like The Vista Sans Wood Type Project’s Facebook page
