Lego My Letterpress? Absolutely!

lego_letterpress1Just when you think you’ve seen about every iteration of letterpress printing, somebody raids the toy chest and whips up something new.

Under the company name Physical Fiction, American graphic designers Samuel Cox and Justin LaRosa market a series of limited-edition prints (below) made using LEGOs on a Showcard proof press. (Previous prints were made on a Vandercook.) Many of the pieces were printed on Strathmore 300 Series Bristol sheets.
