Among the many differences I experienced moving to Sweden, I was struck by the absence of hand-printed show posters. I had grown accustomed to seeing traditional letterpress show posters in everyday public spaces while living in Nashville, TN, and knew several designers actively employing “lost” traditional print methods. I  am drawn to the product and the process both, for their physicality, the tangibility, and tactile nature. My area of interest and resulting project are a response to what I perceive as a gap in traditional print media in Sweden. The project , a 2-D pyramid (400 cm x 280 cm) is printed from hand cut typeface  and contains words, phrases, ideas, song lyrics, sacred texts, and other letter configurations made in the act of composing each panel.
