Broadside (Wayzgoose Press) ; 43.

Summary

Handset type and letterpress printed broadside on Magnani Incisioni 220gsm paper. The broadside muses upon the things we do with our hands today. Mike Hudson’s linocut image adds a bandaged thumb to a copy of Albrecht Dürer’s Praying Hands pen-and-ink drawing of circa 1508. The hands also clasp a smart phone featuring Pikachu, a major character from the Pokémon Go location-based augmented reality game fad of 2016. The quotation comes from Dürer’s Of the just shaping of letters, in his Applied Geometry.
