And the broadsides. All of these were printed on chipboard, in 4 colors, out of a combination of lead and wood type, and a photopolymer plate for the white solid. 7” x 16”. Each was made in an edition of 30. The last one, by Charlotte Salley, ended up on Rives BFK, because somehow we ended up short on the chipboard version.

Looking at them together, you can get a sense of how the “modular design” worked. Every piece had a general place, and then we played a bit with the composition on the press. Planned yet improvisational. It all actually went very smoothly—the only real problem we had was some badly damaged type that one or two were set with.
