Get Your Hands Dirty

by Lesley & Pea

Description

'Get your hands dirty', a smashing letterpress print from Lesley and Pea.

The letterpress design has been printed using wood type that has literally been inked by hand. Inking the type by hand has given a wonderful marbelled effect to the print, making each in the edition truly unique.

Printed in a limited edition of just 50 prints, signed and numbered by the artists. Printed with green ink on white blotting paper.

Get out there and get your hands dirty!

  • Limited edition of 50
  • One colour letterpress print
  • Signed by the artists
  • 300gsm white blotting paper
  • 420mm by 297mm (16½ by 11¾ in)

The Artist

Lesley and Pea are Sussex artist makers who are in love with letterpress and spend hours stroking the type at their local printers. They also run Aardvark  tearoom in lovely St. Leonards on Sea, where the very first manifesto was issued in 2009 as a prize for completed loyalty cards. 

A visit from a traveling press last summer set them off on the woodtype path and their series of wonderful typographic prints began!

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 on white paper this print would suit almost any colour frame. We would recommend a simple dark wood frame, to compliment the green ink used.

This print measures 42cm by 29.7cm which is a standard A3 frame size. Frames of this size can often be found in high street shops or ready-made from local framers.

If you would prefer a frame tailored to specific requirements we would recommend taking the print 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.
