Letterpress print series

_Stay, Don’t Stray
_Falter / Tremble

What happens in moments of pause and disconnect, when we want to articulate thoughts or emotions to someone but there poses an unseen obstacle to communication? 

These prints were created with text that was designed and then lasercut into makeshift plates. These plates were then letterpress printed with multiple print runs (layers) involving hand-inking, overprinting, found textures, and residual ghost printing to explore improvisational print operations and gaps in articulation. Each print contains several runs and different iterations.
