OVERVIEW: An original poem by Neil Gaiman makes its appearance in this signed / limited broadside. 150 copies are for sale to the public, the other 150 copies are for Mr. Gaiman.
 They are hand printed and it takes 10 or so impressions on the press to create the four color text as well as the artwork and the 3 blind strikes (embossing) so that makes over 3000 times he had to hand feed the paper into the press before he came up with the 300 finished broadsides.
Again ONLY 150 copies are available to the public for sale!
PRINTING DETAILS: The Gaiman poem was printed in a limited edition of 300 copies on a Vandercook proof press. The paper is Stonehenge Rising cream 250gm with a deckle edge on the right hand side. The paper is machine-made in the United States, from 100% cotton fibers and is acid-free. The inks used were Van Son and Hostmann & Steinberg oil based and rubber based inks. The typefaces used were Cheltenham roman and italic lead handset moveable type from the California Job Case. Minion Pro and Myriad were printed as digital type. The digital type was made into letterpress plates by creating a negative and processing the text into photo polymer plates and then mounting the plates onto a boxcar press base for printing. The artwork was created by engraving on the endgrain of Canadian maple wood that was machined to type high blocks for printing. Eight impressions (individual times hand fed through the press) were made for each print making it a total of over 3000 impressions including proof and set-up sheets used in the registration process.
George Walker did the illustration as well as the design and typsetting and printing.

2012 Biting Dog Press, sent rolled / flat by Priority Mail for safety and security. Each broadside is sealed upon publication.
