Congratulations to Tracy Honn, whose work is featured this week as an example of gorgeous letterform prints on Design Envy, a meticulously curated blog created by designers.
Tracy Honn is a master printer and Director of Silver Buckle Press, a working museum of letterpress printing housed on the second floor of Memorial Library. Silver Buckle serves as living archive of materials and process for the craft, not only collecting vintage printing equipment, but putting them to use; the Press is a demonstration and education lab as much as it is a museum.
In that spirit, Honn recently created a series of experimental prints using the Van Lanen font designed by Matthew Carter and cut by Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum. Design Envy Curator Bill Moran was so inspired by the series, he claimed “Her color schemes and clever use of two-part letterforms makes me want to run straight to my press and start working.”
