Back in the letterpress print room. Setting type to make some large colourful posters to spark conversation and act as invitations to play.

I kind of feel like during this session I had a breakthrough and now I feel more confident setting type. Using a Cheltenham uppercase wood type.
The test print. I am liking the spacing between the letters. I then moved on to printing on to coloured paper using the blue ink. This would be trial and error as it may look black on some of the paper.
I decided to trim the paper so that the letters would fill the page. I like this image of them put together I think it looks effective and the colours work well. I feel this would have the potential for a billboard display.
