The Enquirer Collection Letterforms Series No. 1 is a new series of full-color, large 24 x 30-inch digital photo prints documenting colorful examples of original letterform woodcuts from the Enquirer Printing collection acquired by HWTPM in 2015. The Letterform Series features carefully chosen characters of each letter of the alphabet and selected punctuation, and accurately reflect the detail and craftmanship behind the creation of these timeless artifacts.
Founded in Cincinnati in 1895 and spanning four generations of the Anderson Family, Enquirer Printing was renowned for its impactful design and craftsmanship in producing multi-colored hand carved wood relief cuts serving the print promotion needs of the entertainment industry during the mainstay of the 20th century.
Just short of having the original objects themselves, these prints are bold, sharp and resonate with their own unique iconic presence – perfect gifts for others or yourself to adorn and personalize your dwelling or workplace.
