Description of Process
The third in a series of six posters developed in response to El Lissitzky's seminal book 'For the Voice'. This poster embraces the visual language of the Dada movement through its use of layout, colour and scale. The poster uses a range of wood type, ornament, blocks and found objects in homage to the principles of early modernism. In the production of this poster there has been careful consideration of the printed surface onto an o -white recycled paper stock and the use of uorescent printing ink to communicate a contemporary edge. This poster was printed on a Western 4 Mk II press with the metal type printed in Grotesque.
