Black Moustache Letterpress / 50 Posters / 2c / 400mm x 650mm / Newsprint 50g/m2 / Mar 2009
Into the night
2c letterpress poster for a cd release. Printed glossy black on matt black from lasercut MDF woodblocks. Bon Jovi did it ‹BACK to BACK› with Richie Sambora! Dryconditions do it ‹BLACK on BLACK›... Haha
The first block was a massive mdf woodblock. On one side I put some paper underneath the block to get an uneven impression. This gives me that weird gradation on the first print. After I let them dry for about 12hours, I powdered them to take off the gloss on that first print. Then I printed the black typography which now appears glossy on the matt background. Yes!
A copy of this poster is now in the archive of the poster collection at Museum of Design Zurich. (Search for ‹Into the Night›)
