Mohawk Press & Western New York Book Arts Center Posters and Prints

I got a message from Mohawk Press, the imprint of the Western New York Book Arts Center about some of their most recent gig poster releases and prints.

A 7-color letterpress print for 'of Montreal' at the Town Ballroom in Buffalo, NY (May 2013). The print features a circular mandala in neon colors consisting of animals, people, objects, and places, all from antique letterpress cuts that reside in the WNYBAC collection.

Broken Social Scene: This two-color letterpress poster was hand carved and hand printed for a Broken Social Scene show in Buffalo, NY on September 25, 2010. Poster can be displayed as is or side by side to create a complete circle, as pictured. This poster is featured on the set of the Mindy Project, in Mindy's apartment.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Isabelle R Martin/ Graycliff Architecture Print. 5-color letterpress print using vintage wood type, metal type, and metal printer's ornaments. Composition was illustrated and designed by Chris Fritton, hand-set by and printed Chris Fritton. All materials used are part of the WNY Book Arts Center collection.

    that Frank Lloyd Wright is insanely good!

  2. The WNY Book Arts Center and Mohawk Press have been open about 4 years - we do event posters, gig posters, architecture prints, cards, and art prints as a way to support our educational mission. Glad you like the work - spread the news! All of the architecture prints are hand set using vintage wood type, metal type, and printers' ornaments; they're run in editions of 100 or less, and can never be reprinted.
