There is no shortage of cool letterpress or silkscreen gigposters out there that we could feature day in and day out, but what sets this poster apart is its designer’s and printer’s (Bennett Holzworth) resourcefulness to transform something as kitschy as paper doilies into a custom template for the design of the poster. As the photos of the process below show, this is what separates a handmade design from a design done on the computer made to look handmade. Certainly it helps to have your own letterpress — in this case, this is Bennett’s 12 × 18 New Style Chandler & Price Platen Press circa 1920 that lives in his garage.
