Update 3:

Please ensure that your PayPal email address is actually still valid. I do have a case of a buyer's email account bouncing all my attempts of contact. I waited for a couple of days, tried re-sending the mails and now I have just gone ahead and shipped it.

Optionally, you might also want to consider including your contact number as part of the address, so I can include that on the shipping package - makes it easier for the courier guys!

Update 2:

I have only 45 28 copies left and it's 20% off now, so grab yours right now. It's now just US$40 dollars, along with free international shipping.

Update:

I have also posted this item on eBay, if that’s your kind of thing (and I know it’s kinda difficult sometimes purchasing things randomly on the web :) ). The price is 5 dollars more, due to the extra charges that eBay imposes.

Added a photo of the (zinc) metal block which is used in the letterpress printing process.

YES, WE CAN - 14" x 20" letterpress poster (US$50 + FREE SHIPPING)

This item is sold out currently. However, I might reprint it again - please send me a mail if you are interested, and I will get in touch with you if and when a copy becomes available. Thank you.

Over the past few months, like many around the world, I have become a big fan of Barack Obama. On seeing Cameron Moll's beautiful letterpress posters, I was inspired to design something similar. However, I aimed for more of a rugged, worn out, traditional letterpress feel.

The poster itself consists of characters from MrsEaves, Bickam Script Pro, Adobe Garamond and the Trajan font families. Instead of using a random set of characters, I decided to embed something meaningful, like important figures, dates, milestones, words and phrases associated with President Obama within the artwork.

Each poster measures 14" by 20" and is printed on handmade cotton paper by a good old platen letterpress machine - one of the very few left in Chennai which can handle this big a poster. Due to the handmade nature of the paper, each poster is printed uniquely with varying intensity of the black ink on different parts of the paper.

I am putting up what started off as a purely personal piece of artwork - for sale here at US$50, which includes shipping charges too! Shipping will take 7-8 days, and your copy of the poster will be rolled and delivered in a durable mailing tube. If you have any queries, please get in touch with me through the contact form. Alternatively, my email address is kishore [(at)] kishorelive.com

You can buy this poster using a number of major credit cards. Your payment is processed by PayPal, but you don't need a PayPal account in order to buy it. (Click the link located under "Don't have a PayPal account?")

Let's welcome the change.
