Paper Parasol Press
My map state series is inspired by vintage tea towels, souvenir plates, and road trips. The newer mass produced souvenir pieces fall completely short of the products made in the past, so this is my modern take on something we love.
All prints are hand-pulled on a vintage Vandercook #3 1955 proof press. The press is motor-less and hand inked. Each color is printed one at a time.
3 color letterpress
Printed on Cranes Lettra 110lb Pearl White, a beautiful cotton paper made for that letterpress "kiss"
