Two New Swiss Prints For Sale!

As some of you may know, I have spent this summer living in Geneva, Switzerland and printing as an artist-in-residence at L’Association pour le Patrimoine Industriel (API - The Association of Industrial Heritage). My time is now over (we leave Geneva tomorrow for a week of travel and then back to the States) but I am happy to report that the two prints that I created during my time are now available for purchase!

The first print, "Typographie Mon Amour" is a two-color print using some of the great wooden type and borders at API. Printed on crisp white paper, the dark grey and red inks really pop out nicely.

The second print, "Dynamisme" is another two-color print utilizing every wooden typeface in API's collection. Dynamisme is French for dynamism - which means "the quality of being characterized by vigorous activity and progress." It is the second-biggest print I have ever made and the overprinting turned out quite well, if I can say so myself!

You can see more images of these prints on my Flickr.

Both of these prints are very limited and will never be printed again, so get them while they are hot!
