Introducing the Greenfield Village Printing Office collection of hand printed letterpress postcards. 

Each design celebrates our collection of 19th century antique wood and metal type along with 21st century artisan printing techniques, creating truly unique prints. These postcards were printed on our 1880’s treadle-driven platen press, one color at a time. The back is printed with a vintage electrotype postcard cut with space to write a message. The results are small, multi-layered works of art, perfect for sending a special note in the mail, or collecting each design to add to your home decor!                   
Freedom Lies in Being Bold Postcard highlights a quote from Robert Frost, whose Ann Arbor home is now located in the Porches & Parlors exhibit at Greenfield Village. The background design features a linocut of thin lines carved like rays of light emanating from the corner of the print in transparent ink. The text is hand-set in 36 point Garamond Italic movable metal type with the word “Bold” in Tuscan Extended antique wood type, printed in black on French’s Speckletone True White cardstock. 

Dims: 4 x 6".
