Letterpress, Project 3
For our third project, each member of the class was assigned a month of the year to create a calendar. I wasn't entirely thrilled to get November until I found the most amazing copper plate illustration of a woman kneeling in front of an open picnic basket full of silverware. I also found these great textured and worn rules. Of all the projects, this one feels most like my design aesthetic. Our TA printed bands to wrap around the calendars, and each student was able to keep two sets. The printmaking department will be selling the extra calendars at the MICA Art Market to generate funds for supplies.
