With COVID-19 vaccination rolling out in many places, including here on Prince Edward Island, there's a glimpse of the end of the pandemic. As I did with I'M OK, WE ARE HERE, Remember Other Places? and UNPRECEDENTED, I wanted to mark this moment.
I also wanted to try printing light-on-dark, which is notoriously difficult with letterpress. To do this, I first printed GLIMPSE using opaque white ink; I let the ink dry, then overprinted with yellow. The result is interesting: certainly not as bright as the yellow would print on white paper, but conveniently shimmery enough to only enhance the notion of a "glimpse."
Printed on Peter Pauper Press 300 gsm acid-free black card stock, with clipped corners, in Futura Bold Condensed in yellow-over-white ink. 3½ x 3½ inches.
