Fourteen typographic broadsides, Spring 2017

In Spring 2017 each student selected a quote by an important typographer or designer. Each quote was handset and printed in the Stanza 153 Press shop at San Francisco State University. Special thanks to Prof. Mario Laplante for making the types in the printmaking room of the Art Department available to our design students. The quotes were printed on either Rives BFK or Stonehenge paper, approximately 12 x 18. Go to high res images of the broadsides.
