SNAKE LETTERPRESS GREETING CARDS
I designed this snake as a t-shirt design with an intent of making a photopolymer plate for letterpress.
In the first image it is what I envisioned it to look with, layered on a pattern I recreated in Illustrator from a design I found on an Art Nouveau book cover.
In the second image is plate 1 and 2 in the same image showing the registration marks, and the third image is the background.
Next is the proofs that were sent back from Concord Engraving of the plates they sent to me.
Lastly, are two images of the end product once printed; a real work of art, printed on my Vandercook #1 proof press with perfect registration!
