Dark, glossy winter

1c letterpress posters for the monthly program for veka-glarus.ch. Printed on an offset preprinted photo I took with an analog camera. The whole type was handset with wood- and lead type.

The offset printer warned me, that I couldn’t get enough contrast by overprinting that offset print, since I already had a lot of saturation especially in that upper left corner. They didn’t realize that 100% offset black has nothing to do with that huge amount of shiny black black ink I applied on that poster with my letterpress print! haha.
