Prints to die for!!

These incredible prints were produced by Stukenborg. They are infact letterpress impressions of dice printed on a Vandercook 317!




The dice are arranged on the bed of the press, and the ink is rolled directly onto the face of the die for each impression. Amazing huh!

  3. these are fabulous Leanda, kinda mesmerising and feel a bit like those magic eye pictures as the subtle patterns keep coming and going out of focus... i love that they've used red ink too, i'm such a sucker for red... :)

  7. Love this... I recent produced several prints on letter press for a project called ADVENTURES IN A BOX. We didn't use dice, but I did carve up a block of cork to produce two Disney dalmatians. Letterpress is great stuff.

    And thank you, One Little Bird, for adding me to your list of art sites....
