Letterpress

Eric Battaglia © 2009

Over the past few months I’ve been taking a letterpress class at Lillstreet Art Center.  It’s been interesting, and a little trying on my patience.  Setting type is a painstaking process, and doesn’t carry the same intrinsic reward for me as meticulous drawing does.  So I kept my use of type to small phrases, like this design, and combining them with my linocut blocks.  I’ve got a few more experimental ideas to try in the last remaining weeks of the class, so we’ll see what else develops.
