Type designer Seb Lester‘s latest screenprint, Peace (sketches for it, shown above) was, he says, inspired by Anglo Saxon art, 18th and 19th century penmanship, and medieval illumination. Here’s a look at the two different available colourways of Peace which both make stunning use of shiny metalic paper stocks…
Peace is available in a gold on black version (shown above), and also as a dark chrome on white print:
Actually, it is the black that’s printed on to gold stock, and the white that’s printed on to chrome stock – something that’s a little clearer when you see the prints drying on the rack
Peace (Gold) is a two colour screen print on Gold Mirri H-Range paper, 270gsm, in an edition of 100. Dimensions: 850 X 255mm. Peace (White) is also limited to 100 editions and printed at the same dimensions but onto Dark Chrome Mirri paper, 270gsm. Both are available from Lester’s website, seblester.co.uk, priced at £85 plus postage and packaging.
Both colourways of Peace, plus a selection of Lester’s work will be shown at London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen for the next two months (as of Thursday, September 1), much of it printed at a much larger scale than ever before.
