Layers in a publication format

Exploring the idea of thinking about a box metaphorically to complete my final box set of prints, I decided to print out the scanned images of both my distorted type and letterpress experiments to test the possibility of making a publication.

Using Letterpress with My Text

Seeing that I had now directed my focus on using the collection of postcards as my point of development and inspiration, I thought to experiment with typography on the other end of the spectrum away from hand rendered type, using more structured type thus using the letterpress facilities was perfectly suited for that particular exploration.

Experimenting with Handwritten Text

Reviewing my work on the second hand shop, I realised that the small descriptive paragraph I had written might in fact be the context I need to present (with or without my object prints) in order to really express my experience and after finding those old postcards, I started experimenting with my own handwritten memories of my derive in the second hand shop.
