Letraset dry transfer type was popular from the 1960’s through the 1980’s (before all typography was done on computers). You would simply use a pen or burnishing tool to force the type off the plastic sheet and onto paper. I designed my first ever band flyer using Letraset in 1994 and continued to find uses for it on multiple Fillmore posters (as the tedious process creates these great human imperfections that would be hard to recreate digitally).
So, as sort of an ode to this highly anachronistic tool, I took a partially-used character set I had laying around and made this print. The tool is now the art.

A proposed and unprinted concept for Tracy Chapman at The Fillmore. This poster attempts to show her music and her activism being nearly inseparable. Only one print ever made.
