Usually, the Center for Book Arts broadsides are for poems, but this one was for a short story by David Barclay Moore called "blue". It was an interesting challenge: how do you get the feel of a story when you can only use an excerpt?  Anne and I came up with the idea to use words and phrases from the story and lay them all out as a word-cloud. We then ran it through the letterpress a few times to give it density and abstraction, while also referencing the palimpsest effect you get when you have multiple ads and tags plastered up on buildings.  The section of that we chose as the excerpt really spoke to both of us. Since the story revolves around two boys in the 1990s learning that they care about one another as more than friends, Anne came up with the idea of adding a polymer plate print of her hand drawing - which, I think, really ties the whole piece together.

These were made for my wonderful niece, Hannah B. HB is an avid skier, so we came up with a design to reflect that. The snowflake pattern of the cards was created by using sign symbols from ski slopes - circles, squares, diamonds and double diamonds. Her favorite color is blue, so that is what I used. 

Five print runs for the invites. Four print runs for the reply cards. Legion bamboo paper. Printed on the Universal I at the NY CBA.
