On Press / Off Press

My entry (#3837) of approximately 5,000 in the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program (MAEP) “Foot in the Door 4”, showing at Minneapolis Institute of Arts: 19 February - 13 June 2010

An homage to the ubiquitous format of the 20th Century.

In the egalitarian spirit of the show*, I decided to use two incomplete fonts of wood type, setting the copy according to available characters (note the constructed T ); and adjusted baselines to accommodate the two different sizes.

Printed on 30# Canson Newsprint in Pantone 445.

* Any 2-dimensional work, of one foot square or less; or 3-dimensional work, of one cubic foot or less, was automatically entered into the show.
