Heroes of Folk Letterpress cards

I had the opportunity to design a show print for the band Wilco’s concert in Deluth, Minnesota a few years back. This led me to creating a Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox illustration. Inspired, I got the crazy idea to do a series of folk characters including the likes of Annie Oakley, Rosie The Riveter, John Henry, The Mighty Casey and of course the original hippy Johnny Appleseed. The Heroes cards are 6″ × 8″ double-sided, three color letterpress prints. They are on Crane Lettra 220 lb. stock, fluorescent white. The prints were done by the masterful pressman Scott McClelland of Paper Meets Press. Signed and numbered prints are available for purchase at my shop.
