Letterpress Process

 These were handmade on Tuesday. I still need to print "ugliness" on the bottom line. 
My type is set and ready to press. I will be working in the studio tomorrow afternoon (Friday). 

This is a print on silver paper (my favorite). 

To incorporate some interesting hierarchy, the type chosen for "ugliness" is extremely small. I wanted it to be as if the word "ugliness" was disappearing, which coincides with the quote. My second design will be the opposite with the main text being very small and "ugliness" printed remarkably larger. 

Here it is on "peacock" colored paper.

And finally, here is the print on a white cotton paper.
