PATER NOSTER

PATER NOSTER


This broadside measures 12" × 18". Its text is the Lord’s Prayer (Our Father who art in heaven &c) in Latin, set in Millefleur Victor, a typeface that I designed myself. Its letters have the basic shapes of capitals that appear in medieval manuscripts, paintings and tapestries. Their outlines are filled with tiny decorations: plants, fungi, beasts, birds, bugs and fish.

DETAIL


Approximately 200 broadsides were made in 2015 and issued in an open edition. They were printed on a Heidelberg cylinder press at Rohner Letterpress (Chicago, IL), using 1920 Bond Black, an ink made by Graphic Chemical & Ink (Villa Park, IL). The paper is text-weight Reich Savoy, which is 100% cotton and archival.

The print costs $82. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address. See this page for additional ordering instructions and general information. If you want to pay via a check or money order, please e-mail me at danmitsui [at] hotmail [dot] com.
