A few days ago I went to Chelsea Market to buy some yummy bread and as luck should have it they had an immense letterpress exhibition by Yee-Haw Industries. Unfortunately for me I wasn't carrying my camera, so all the images here are from their website.
The exhibition consisted of 78 prints dotted around the market. I really liked the variety in the prints - some were just letterpressed; others letterpressed and then sewn (50 quilt squares were created specifically for the show); some were overlaid woodcut letters and some were huge (42x90"). They were all lovely, reasonably priced and drool worthy.
Yee-Haw Industries are based in Knoxville, Tennessee. They are a custom letterpress print and design outfit founded in 1997 by Kevin Bradley and Julie Belcher. The exhibition ran from 4th October 2009 - 2nd January 2010. New Year's resolutions: 1. always carry a camera, 2. learn about exhibitions earlier, 3. post said exhibitions. Sorry folks!
