Tutti Frutti

by Hand & Eye

Description

Inspired by the opening cry of Little Richard's rock & roll hit 'Tutti Frutti', this fantastic print was designed and printed at Hand & Eye Letterpress by Phil Abel, Nick Gill and Rosa De Carlo.

The bright colours chosen are in reference to the fruity lyrics, and the immediate visual impact of the wood letter is as close as typography can get to Little Richard's yelp that begins the song.

The letterpress poster was printed in 7 colours on smooth white paper on a FAG Control 525 proofing press at Hand & Eye's London studio. The ideal gift for lovers of music and typography!

  • Letterpressed by hand
  • 7 colours on smooth white paper
  • 447mm by 632mm (17½ by 24¾ in)

Framing

We do not currently offer a framing service; however, please find some advice on how best to frame this print below.

As a colourful design this print would look fantastic framed in a plain white or black frame, to really allow the colours to stand out. If you want something a little more unique you might consider a frame in the same colour as one of those used in the print. A bright red frame for example would look terrific!

To best display this beautiful print we would recommend taking it to a local framer who would be able to offer expert advice and a wide variety of framing materials and options. There are also now many online framers who can custom make frames to your requirements. By searching online for 'custom frames' you will find many online framers stocking both standard sizes and frames custom made to any size, in a wide variety of options. 

Vintage frames and pre-loved frames discovered in markets and charity shops can also provide unique and low-cost framing options. If a frame that you find is larger than the print fret not, a local framer should be able to cut a piece of mount that would allow the print to fit the frame perfectly.
