    A Bird In Hand

    Illustration for a letterpress project. Quill pen and ink drawing on paper, scanned at 1200 dpi with line work refined in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom stylus and tablet.

    The beautiful typeface is Matthew Carter's Sophia, composed in InDesign CS4.

    In addition to the drawing and type, the letterpress print will have three colors requiring separate printing plates as shown below (black signify printing areas).

    Letterpress resources: The Bieler Press, Tamburello Productions (film negatives)
