    3-color letterpress posters for a one day/night poster workshop with 13 international poster designers. Printed from cardboard strips cut and brought to typeheight, lead- and photopolymertype. Design- & printworks in collaboration with Jonas Wandeler.

    Since in that workshop the designers are supposed to work with cardboard as a main material to produce the letterpress printing blocks, Kühne also wanted to use cardboard for the poster. The first print was from cardboard strips brought to typeheight. The second print was lead type set into the lowered cardboard strips. The third print was from photopolymer letters. These posters have been folded and sent out to invite people for the vernissage of that workshop on march 12, 2011.
