Here was another broadside I put together for a recent show. This one was super simple but kind of awesome for me. The type is handset wood and lead, hence the silly kerning—which I love and find charming. The upside-down cross was an experiment. It's mat board cut out and mounted on a block. It worked out pretty cool but I need to work the idea a little more. The paper is something that I probably won't use again. It's this handmade paper from India. It doesn't have any crap in it that would ruin the type but it's very inconsistent. It worked cool for this and looks cool with the transparent white but I think for any fine printing I will have to think of something else.
Here is a pic...
