This little piggy went to market.
This limited edition letterpress art print “Pig Parts” is a collaboration between Red Bird Ink (Julia & Collin) and Two Sweaters (Lucy twosweaters.etsy.com).
Lucy painted the original AMAZING pig portrait and we made it into letterpress plates and then printed the plates using our trusty Chandler & Price letterpress.
The pink pig is a three color print. First, we printed the pink piggy skin. Next, we printed the soft pink nose. Finally, we printed the black lines and text.
We have three other prints in this series…
The Cream Cow, the Brown Cow and the White Cow.
Each piece in this series is pressed into tree-free, ultra thick, luxurious, cotton paper made using scraps from the garment industry.
Our press uses 100% human power. This means that our press uses no electricity, just the power of our arms and legs… think old-school treadle sewing machine but much bigger. See this vimeo by our friends at People of Resource for a visual.
