New Direction

by asintended

Description

'Time for a new direction', a rather lovely letterpress print from asintended. 

The design has been printed on original pages of the Harmsworth's New Atlas. The diversity of these Atlas pages and the letterpress printing method makes each print truly one of a kind. On the reverse of each page you will find images and text from the original atlas book, adding an extra dimension to these wonderful prints. 

Each has been printed by the artist in purple ink using a Vandercook proofing press.

These prints combine two of Clare's passions, typography and old maps.

Please note as the atlas pages are very diverse, you may not receive one similar to those shown here. If you have a particular preference over the style of atlas page please contact us. Otherwise we'll choose for you, it's like a lucky dip!

  • Signed & dated
  • Printed by the artist
  • Purple ink
  • On vintage atlas pages
  • 365mm by 240mm (14¼ by 9½ in)

The Artist

asintended is the new creative outlet for graphic designer Clare Somerville-Perkins.

Whilst working in front of an apple mac for the last 16 years (something Clare swore she wouldn’t do when she was at art college) she felt that there became an urgent need for some hands on creative activity her my life.

Clare decided to combine her passions for print, typography, interiors and vintage finds and created asintended. It’s a place where she can escape to, creating hand made prints using silkscreen printing and letterpress.

In Clare's words: "There is a real connection to graphic design in my work – it runs in my blood really, something which I relish. The main question I ask myself is “would I hang it on my living room wall?” If it’s “yes!”, than it’s full steam ahead. I really believe it’s important that people express themselves in their homes, and having an original piece of art to hang on your wall is just the icing on the cake."

Framing

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

As a single colour design printed on a vintage atlas page this print would look fantastic framed in a simple gold or wood frame.

To best display and protect 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.
