Certain Absurdity 2019
Letterpress Relief Print 11" x 17" (folds to 4.25”x5.5”)

This mini zine was made as a contribution to the 4th Edition of Detritus, and ongoing Magazine curated and created by Chris Perry. The inspiration for this print was “liminal space” and includes photographs of my recent life as I transition from living in Maine and being in school full-time to living in Western Massachusetts and working full-time. Although the move was not at all drawn out, the effects of relocating left me in a spin that I am only recently winding down from. Other ideas embedded in the imagery include the tension between the that which humans have created and that which we allow to remain.

Printed on both sides, this sheet works as a center spread in the larger format of its intended publication but also functions as a standalone zine with a few folds and a small cut. The interior pages that display the zine were printed in two colors with polymer plates on a Vandercook letter press. On the exterior pages you will find a single blended roll of mostly polymer plates and the title of the piece spelled out in wood type.


Printed with oil based letter press and offset inks on Sunflower 70# Text from Neenah Papers. 
Made at ZeaMays in Northampton, Massachusetts, June 2019
