Museum of Making Letterpress Print. To celebrate the launch of the brand new Museum of Making, we were commissioned to create a print which was gifted to the first 1000 visitors and VIPs.

Director Hannah Fox supplied the copy, I created a pen and ink drawing of the building and Chris set the text, printing the results in 2 colours, copper and black. As an added twist, the paper we used, Fabriano, is an Italian cotton paper, which gives a nod to the mills less honourable moments

Along with an info card and glassine bag, the print were ready to hand out and were well received. It was a really huge honour to be asked to be involved in the launch of the museum which has received national interest and praise for the initiative.
