SWING TAGS

These tags were created on our baby Adana presses which are all hand operated and sit on the tabletops. They were designed for use in the home.



 We recently became happy custodians of lead type from the Wilcannia newspaper. This is what was created from them. In setting our own type we were inspired by Virginia Woolf whom set all the type for Hogarth Press.
Virginia admired that when handling letters individually ones own creativity was extended to a 3 dimensional viewpoint, which then extended into her writing.
Working with sculptural elements in my own artwork I found this very inspiring.
