The Monsters

2c letterpress posters for a concert of the Swiss punk trash legends ‹The Monsters› at . Two reversed 2c splitfountain prints. Printed from lasercut linoleum and some old magnesium plates I got from a printmaker.

About two years ago I got 500 small photoplates of carneval masks and faces. I always thought of printing a poster with them. Finally I did it… haha. I printed about 30 prints on newsprint 50g/m2, another 15 on munken 160g/m2. Printed on a Vandercook Uni IV. The first edition of 50 posters has been sold out in 2010, so I printed a second edition of 100 posters in 2011.
