We chose Somerset Velvet Softwhite 300gsm because we required a paper to hold the richness of our floral print designs so they really shine through. The text on this paper really appears sharp and unmuddled like some [other papers we've used]. Somerset allows us to constantly change the color of the image and text and provides the necessary consistency our clients require.
This exquisite letterpress piece on Somerset Textured Softwhite was designed by Mary-Jo Mostoway from Rohner Letterpress for the Poetry Center of Chicago. This letterpress broadside features an excerpt from Yusaf Komunyakaa's poem, "Love in the time of war". "We chose Somerset because it had the character, feel and printability that we were seeking for a project of this caliber."
"Are You A Kathleen Or An Elizabeth? A Keith Or A Country Joe?" is a gate fold letterpress print created by Providence's CW Roelleand DWRI Letterpress. The artwork measures roughly 10" high by 20" wide when open. Folded, the print measures roughly 10" high by 10" wide.
Each letterpress print has been signed by the artist and blind debossed by the printer with the print's number and edition information. It is printed on St. Cuthberts' archival 300gsm Somerset textured printmaking paper in a natural white. The gate fold features a deckle edge.
