Arrighi and Centaur
Broadside print printed during Letterpress 1 classes as SVC.
Printed at the School of Visual Concepts, Seattle, WA, US.
Letterpress printed on a Vandercook, 2 passes. Using handset metal type from the studio and carved linoleum blocks.
After randomly writing typeface inspired funny phrases, I picked "Joyful Arrighi shows some samba steps to CENTAUR" to explore this playful and experimental composition to celebrate my first Letterpress project. After all, it was carnival in Brazil and why not imagine this dance between two typefaces who came from separate backgrounds, fell in love with each other, and formed a family.

Printed at the letterpress studio of Rebecca Mullins, La Conner, WA, US.
Letterpress printed on a Vandercook 219, 2 passes.
