A small letterpress studio in Guildford, Surrey, England.

Having a party

Reggae superstar Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry played my local music venue, The Boileroom, Guildford. He has a fabulous free form lyrical style, so something to match was called for. I did a short run of 25 posters and had one signed by the great man.

You never have enough type. Here I was missing the C and the R.

Which means an overprint, reusing some of the lettere already used.

Getting them to register is a pain.
