'Suffer For Your Art' Open Edition
Print Size A4, 280gsm Recycled Card (sold unframed but contact us if you would like it framed)
Designed and printed by Russell Frost of Hooksmith Press, a small letterpress print shop in East London.
The print is a positive affirmation to all artists and artisans who toil away relentlessly for the love of their art.
Letterpress printed with handset and hand-inked Victorian wooden 'shadow-font'. The shadow woodtype is likely to have originally been half of a 2-colour font, though poignantly the shadows are all that remains now.
In Russell's words: "My work reflects a slower time and a love of typography and the written word. Letterpress is a medium which allows me to collect and re-use elements from the past to create something new; a tangible and tactile connection to history and a continuation of a craft."
