The Weekend Press

Our friends over at the recently launched Weekend Press have teamed up with some amazing designers to create a letterpress print set that pays tribute to Oakland. Featuring work from Brent Couchman, Anna Hurley, Carl Bender, Erik Marinovich, Eszter Clark, Javier Garcia, Jeffrey Bucholtz, Nate Leutkehans, Richard Perez and Albert + Marie, the limited edition set, aptly titled Oakland Illustrated, is currently available through their Kickstarter page.

In addition to the print set, special pledge packages have been set up for those willing to invest a little more. Perks include a private letterpress workshop and a chance to meet with one of the artists involved.

Tags,

I like the geometrical designs, especially the image of a sun with the geometrical waves, i also like the way the reflection of the sun on the waves, which has a calming but surreal quality to it- very unusual for a geometric pattern!

Those are scrumptious!

Nice to see that the project was funded. Great team of illustrators
