Hand Papermaking’s 2019 Year-End Broadside is here! And it is the stunning result of an amazing collaboration between three Pacific Northwest creative spirits: poet Kathleen Flenniken, papermaker Mary Ashton, and printer Jessica Spring.
With art direction by Hand Papermaking board member Alta Price, “The Language of Making” was printed at Springtide Press in the fall of 2019 to benefit Hand Papermaking, Inc. This poem has not been collected or published in any of Flenniken’s works. The base paper is a white text sheet composed of 25% abaca, 75% cotton fibers, with color blocks pulp-painted in red-pigmented, 100% cotton fibers. The print was composed and letterpress printed using Artcraft metal type and vintagewood type by Jessica Spring of Springtide Press.
