This limited edition print uses a 2 foot high vintage wood type number 2 (Yellow) along with a smaller vintage hand-cut two (Magenta) and a still quite large, but smaller wood type P (Cyan). Hand inked and printed on a 22 x 28 showcard press, this print edition is inspired by Pop Art and the pure yet flawed texture of woodtype. The uncoated paper takes the ink in varying capacity with the lighter colors printed on top of the darker to maximize color blending.
P22 founder Richard Kegler spent 2006-2012 helping create the Western New York Book Arts Center (WNYBAC) where he was the Artistic Director. The work at WNYBAC was pivotal in the development of the new line of wood type fonts with Hamilton Wood Type Museum. Kegler is also currently the Director of the Wells Book Arts Center in Aurora, NY.
