If this expression is not a true summation of the times, I don’t know what is. This print is a collaboration between Joel of Dependable Letterpress and artist George McCalman of McCalmanCo. created in June 2020 as the pandemic raged. George created a watercolor painting with his hand lettering of this timeless phrase, and wanted to turn it into a letterpress print. Joel wanted to play with a technique of printing from hand cut paper shapes where the ink is transferred partly by the relief and partly by the increased pressure that the cutouts provide. This is how a collaboration starts, two people bringing their skills to the table (or press, as the case may be) and this poster is the result.

Letterpress printed in three colors to capture the spirit of (but not strictly reproduce) the original watercolor, we got an edition of 175 from the paper we had. Printed on Biblio, a textured art paper. Shipped rolled in a tube. Free shipping in the USA!
