Project Description

With a tip of the hat to printers and activists of the past, American Manifesto calls the United States citizens to action on a number of national concerns–our country's health, leadership, and environment, to name a few. 12-pages, 3-colors, letterpressed on a Heidelberg 10×15 Windmill at Angel Bomb on wool and cotton papers.

Production Lesson(s)

It's a good idea to run tests with unfamiliar fonts and papers before getting too far into the project. Plan for creep early on. And finalize the design as much as possible before prepping for print.”
