On Thursday I completed my “crash printing” assignment. I designed two prints using plates from the Bell Museum of Natural History‘s archives (from Francie Lee Jacques and Walter Breckenridge) and experimented with typesetting. I was so into it (and my hands were so covered in ink, anyway) that I forgot to take photos during the inking (pulling out the ink and applying it to my plates with a brayer) and pressing process. The photos below are my layouts and results.
