Solidarity of Spirit

Freegypt, small letterpress poster

Egypt broke centuries old oppression with feet on the ground, old-school/new-school communications web 2.0 technological mash-ups, brave hearts and the solidarity of like minds. Someone produced this tribute, recording the moment, standing for the movement and marking the occasion as the beginning of the revolutions for freedom of the 'Arab Spring' of 2011.

A hand printed letterpress poster, produced in a limited run of 22 copies, with Antique Tuscan (c.1854, wood type) for the display and an antique Grecian border. This edition was produced with a split fount, so each proof is slightly distinct in the mix of blue and green inks used. Copies are now available online in the store, and at the shop in Toronto.
