• Image of "Do you suffer from Cheerfulness?" print by Hooksmith Press

320x450mm hand set and hand printed letter press print on recycled paper stock (sold unframed).

A symptom outlined in the Wipers Times (WW1) for those victims of optimism!

Designed and printed by Russell Frost of Hooksmith Press, a small letterpress print shop in East London.

Print runs of posters by Russell Frost are hand-crafted using a combination of traditional wood type and metal type.

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."
