Okay, sure, letterpress probably already fell into some version of the “folk” genre, but Gillian Welch has made it official again on Tuesday when she released her new album, The Harrow & The Harvest. The beautiful cover illustration by John Dyer Baizley was letterpress printed at Aardvark Letterpress in California.
Taking it one step further, Gillian is inviting fans to stain the cd cover themselves with coffee. Awesome.
I just ordered my copy.
