Oh what a beautiful Day (glow)!

oh what a beautiful day - letterpress on handmade paper

I wasn’t sure what to expect from dayglo printing ink. My printer friend grabbed it off a shelf as sort of an afterthought – “try this,” he said. It sat for a while by the press while I played it safe with traditional black. I wasn’t actually certain just what color it would be and I couldn’t really picture any of my current designs being playful enough to┬ámake it work.

But then I, sort of accidentally, had this plate made and I decided to try it out. And, as you can plainly see, this is some pretty great stuff. The prints above are made on handmade paper I had left over from my wedding invitations a few years ago.

More bright prints most definitely to come…
