Moth Paper Sculpture

$13.00

This moth began life as a flat block. It was hand-carved to create each little line, then printed onto this paper in a vintage letterpress. It is precut and includes adhesive and instructions. 

This kit was letterpress printed on a press from 1958 in Lancaster, Ohio. It was printed from a wood engraving- a hand-carved block. It is printed on French paper (made in the USA) and packaged in an eco-friendly sleeve. When flat, the paper measures 8x10. 

Questionable Press is artist and printer Sarah Brown and a few tons of letterpress printing equipment. Sarah hand carves each image and pairs them with vintage hand-set type. She then prints them, one color at a time, in letterpresses from the 1940s and '50s. Using these methods, she makes greeting cards, posters, paper sculptures, and journals. 

Sarah grew up in Buckhannon, West Virginia. Not only did her rural upbringing influence her subject matter, it gave her the can-do attitude that a letterpress printer needs to run antique printing presses. Find out more about her process at questionablepress.com

Location: Lancaster, OH
