This started as a bit of a basic exercise, simply setting and overprinting the upper case and lower case letters … but when I was locking up the black type I realised I was holding a lower case D, and not a B.
It stumped me for a few days, but then I made the plate of the bumble bee to fill the gap, and it works well I reckon. Really nice impression in the paper, its quite tactile how the wooden type prints.
A3 letterpress print, 250gsm stock, hand pulled on a table top top press with wooden type. Limited Edition of 50, numbered.
