SWEETPEA
LETTERPRESS BROADSIDE


SWEETPEA   SWEETPEA


This broadside of a sweetpea plant measures 5 1/2" × 8 1/4". It is based on one of my ink drawings on paper. A scan of this drawing, slightly enlarged and modified, was used to create the plate for letterpress printing. The typeface is Millefleur Benedict, which I designed myself.



SWEETPEA   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). Graphic Chemical & Ink (Villa Park, IL) supplied a traditional printing ink made from linseed oil & furnace black. The paper is text-weight Reich Savoy, which is 100% cotton and archival.

The print costs $17. 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.

I can color this broadside by hand, using pigment-based calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes. Each hand-colored print is unique. The one you receive will not be identical to the one shown here.
