letterpress quote

Handset wood and metal type printed letterpress into soft 300g somerset cotton, limited edition of 30.
Ansel Adams is best known for his black & white photographs so only fitting that it be printed so, don't you think?
Though a small number have been printed on somerset antique cream, as shown in the frame, thought it just softened the black a little!
Available direct from my little Big Cartel shop or from Folksy or Etsy.
Printed by request for a present, can't say who in case the other half finds out ;o)

    Thanks Tanya, tried lots of different fonts and they all just didn't look right but then again I don't have a huge amount of lead type, had to borrow one in the end but can't remember the name! Would have liked to have kerned the capital Y but hadn't got the courage to attack my woodtype with a hacksaw!
    Can't wait to see what your up to ;D
