• Image of "Art snobs will not be tolerated" print by Hooksmith Press

A4 hand set and hand printed letterpress print on recycled stock (sold unframed).

Is a Letterpress print Art? That is the question. This tongue in cheek print is aimed at those who take themselves just a tad too seriously...

Designed and printed by Russell Frost of Hooksmith Press, a small letterpress print shop in East London.

Print runs of posters by Russell Frost are hand-crafted using a combination of traditional wood type and metal type.

In Russell's words: "My work reflects a slower time and a love of typography and the written word. Letterpress is a medium which allows me to collect and re-use elements from the past to create something new; a tangible and tactile connection to history and a continuation of a craft."
