About this project
I'm creating a fine press (letterpress) visual workbook to help promote and teach creative thinking. It will be full of luscious watercolor illustrations and letterpress printed type.
It will be around 75-100 pages and include illustrated descriptions of the concepts surrounding creative thinking and tons of visual exercises for you to practice. Made from the highest quality materials, this is designed to be an heirloom book. It will be written, illustrated, designed, printed, and bound by myself.
This book is designed to be accessible to people in all fields, teachers, high schoolers, business professionals, scientists, artists, and more. A great teaching tool or resource whenever you feel stuck in your thinking. This book is full of images, it's not a lengthy tome of intellectual writing, but a usable, workbook for those who want to improve or access their visual thinking.
Wondering what letterpress is? It's a type of printmaking using hand set type or light sensitive plates that can make an impression in the paper. I print on a Vandercook 219 using photopolymer.
