New prints from the Tacoma Wayzgoose

You can never have too much letterpress work! We picked up a couple of prints at the Tacoma Wayzgoose. There was lots to choose from so it was hard to decide!I love this bear print by JR Adler. He was in letterpress at PLU. I love the composition and color. You can get this print on JR's new etsy site.
I put the print on our metal door to photograph it. When I stepped back, the whole scene struck me as funny--because the print says "go inside" on our door that leads outside and the pinhole photography piece to the left is by Chandon Thorell which has a dressed up couple sitting on a couch in their yard. All the juxtapositions made my day, I'm leaving the print on the door!As I mentioned in the last post, the Beautiful Angle letterpress booth was a mob scene at the wayzgoose. If you haven't heard of them, they are graphic designer Lance Kagey and writer Tom Llewelleyn who create and distribute letterpress posters around Tacoma. Their work is wildly sought after and hard to obtain via the seek and find route. Thankfully, they brought prints to sell. Here's the print we got based on the 7 deadly sins.

The printing is lovely and the writing sublime. Again, I love the juxtaposition of image and text.
Check out Beautiful Angle's website. Really cool stuff!
