In addition to the regular (book-only) edition, we present this deluxe edition, which includes a portfolio of 25 original letterpress prints. These compositions were individually printed in response to the new common theme of ‘hope’, which followed the 2016 theme of ‘fear’ in 2017. Each year, the participants carry out their chosen theme in two stages: during the group art residency and, later, with each person’s individual work in their own studio. Opposite/complementary themes are chosen to create tension and find balance. The deluxe edition of the Letterpress Workers volume shows these two moments together.
