Old craft serves new art as E.K. Smith and Dikko Faust collaborate and conspire to push the envelope of letterpress printmaking. Time is no object as our cutting edge typography slices the thickest branches like a hot knife through butter. Co-conspirators include a hundred writers, artists, architects, doctors, children, chosen for work that packs a wallop.
