  • Mount Street Printers: Letterpress Window
    Mount Street Printers: Letterpress WindowI designed and crafted these bespoke paper letterpress blocks for Mount Street Printers Window in Mayfair, London. I cut the front faces of the letters from Colourplan Citrine yellow, which gives the idea that the blocks have been 'inked'. The front free podiums are weight bearing enabling the visual merchandising of Mount Streets products. Thank you to paper maker G.F Smith for supporting the window.
