How To—Hepher & Keliher

letterpress printed poem and illustration
Standard Medium & reduction linocut / 3 inks / 8×10 inches

Written, designed and printed in collaboration with Michael Hepher of Clawhammer Press, during a two day visit to Expedition Press filled to the brim with long hours of artist/printer process talk, sudden and efficient execution of three print runs, and process talk continued late into the night with whiskey, gazing out into dark seas.

Original letterpress print from handset type and a reduction linocut, printed on a 1906 Colt’s Armory Press. Limited edition of 45, signed and numbered by the artists. Available for sale in Expedition’s online store (but if you’re in Canada, contact Michael for a copy!).
