Salty by Michelle Vaughan. Celebrate National Oyster Day with her letterpress editions!

These prints use text to describe the action of eating. This series was handset from woodblock type on a vintage Vandercook letterpress at The Arm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a haven for this rapidly disappearing craft. The custom Verona pink-colored ink represents the interior of oyster shells. The Hamilton Gothic (also known as Franklin Gothic) type, from the 1920s, was originally owned by the Baltimore Police Department. It is a clean, honest face for everyday use. Oysters were once the everyman’s food, eaten by rich and poor alike—Gothic symbolizes this spirit.

Slurp and Salty by Michelle Vaughan
An oyster lover, artist Michelle Vaughan uses text to capture the action of eating the popular shellfish. And the delicate pink coloring? Vaughan chose this shade for its resemblance to the interiors of oyster shells. Even the Hamilton Gothic typeface, originally owned by the Baltimore Police Department, is meant to evoke Vaughan’s favorite food. “It is a clean, honest face for everyday use,” says the artist. “Oysters were once the everyman’s food, eaten by rich and poor alike—Gothic symbolizes this spirit.”
Prints of these editions begin at $60.

New on 20x200: The New Math of Relationships by Craig Damrauer

11”x14” | $50 | 200

Today’s editions—also from his New Math series—tackle the complexities of relationships. Many and varied as those complexities are, it seemed fitting to present a suite of prints. (And a sweet suite at that!) Since we’re talking about feelings and all, why not something tactile? Which is to say: these editions are letterpress, their inky black type so deeply impressed upon a paper woven of Craig’s signature blue hue that you can feel them on the print’s surface. Minimal and elegant, The New Math of Relationshipsmakes the world of relationships seem utterly manageable (*cough*).
