Distinguishably Letterpress

This spring I had the honor of printing and framing the Wisconsin Alumni Association‘s Distinguished Alumni Awards for the second year in a row.

The design, by Colleen O’Hara, is simple, clean, and elegant. The awards are letterpress printed on Rives BFK cotton rag paper, which is torn down to size by hand, and then mounted to a sheet of red Lokta paper before being floated in a mat for framing.

The Distinguished Alumni Award celebrates outstanding UW-Madison graduates whose professional achievements, contributions to society and support of the university exemplify the Wisconsin Idea.
