SOLD Grapes (Antique Wood Type)

15″ x 12″  Antique Wood Type Collage Framed  375

Grapes contains a small oil painting, corks and wood type that contains words (that appear backwards). Each character represents a family of type designed for printing. This method of type began around 1800 and continued in small print shops until the late 19th century. It is carved from maple and attached to a wood base. The layout is then inked and placed in a press to produce a finished printed copy.
