Open Day

And this was the final product for the Open days poster project: A 4 layer letterpress print on old newsprint. Of the 30 I started printing, only 5 came out ok, mostly due to the thinness of the paper making it difficult to align the different layers. The body text is set in 8pt Univers, which made me learn my lesson. NEVER set anything in 8point type on letter press. It will drive you mad! It's the reason computers were invented! But despite that, I learned a lot and now that it's finished, I'm rather proud of it.
