Brighton Letterpress Print

An illuminated letterpress print describing the cultural highlights of the British seaside town of Brighton

To capture the culture and spirit of Brighton I created a letterpress print that focusses on the arts and entertainment scene of the seaside city. The print charts the town’s rapid development as a cultural destination and describes its many attractions and events.
 
Printed from a set of three large zinc plates, the print show some natural alignment imperfections.
