ad a blast printing posters for the Bouja in Mary Bruno’s studio yesterday all day. It took me a few hours just to set all the <-type.
Her old presses sure make the job slick. At right you see the bed of the press with the type locked into place. And below, the finished poster.
I almost made a hilarious mistake while printing them- since you are setting type backwards it is easy to make and miss mistakes. When we pulled a proof it read, “fill your bowls with complimentary soups and beard” instead of bread. Now that would be something, wouldn’t it?
