Letterpress print on bright day-glow pink paper, by Hooksmith Press.

Sold unframed 297x138mm

Designed and printed by Russell Frost of Hooksmith Press, a small letterpress print shop in East London.
Russell says about this piece: "Read all about it........What has happened to the world? If he doesn't end it, President 45 could be immortalised by this print for ever?
The wood type is all from the later 1800's early 1900's. The word fake is printed with a shadow type - hollow and substance-less, just like No.45."

In Russell's words: "My work reflects a slower time and a love of typography and the written word. Letterpress is a medium which allows me to collect and re-use elements from the past to create something new; a tangible and tactile connection to history and a continuation of a craft."
