Last night we pulled the first proof of our letterpress concert poster for the Wealthy Orphans CD Release with the help of our friends at Think Not Design. Chris Fox and his crew are really great to work with. They have created a cool print shop by collecting together equipment that just a decade ago was on a fast track to the scrap heap, as if this way of printing no longer had a place in our new world - reshaped by the digital revolution.
What we are finding is that the more we press into an era where everything tends to come through to our senses by way of a screen, we now have an increasing appetite for all that which is still affected by gravity. We desperately need those things that we can hold in the palm of our hand and feel their weight against our skin.
(Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to pre order a poster. They will be $40 in a limited edition of 35.)
