Cancelled and Rescheduled

    Everything cancelled and rescheduled — 400 letterpress posters for the program of Unfortunately all shows on that poster had to be canceled. But there was a pretty good alternative program.

    The «canceled» shows have been crossed out and in the sidenote there is a fake reason like “rescheduled” or “too expensive“ and the information about the alternative event. This poster was Dafi’s reaction to some shows from the program of fall 2011 having been cancelled.

    Printed in 3 colourruns from cut linoleum and leadtype (Bodoni). The large text in a bold modern style Didot was cut by hand from linoleum and since this was very hard the type got some interesting characteristics. From a distance it looks like a perfect cut but getting closer you can see some nice imperfections.
