Shelly's piece, Nine Shuttlecocks, is a three-color print on 110 pound Crane's Lettra paper. It was printed on a Vandercook Universal 3. This print is yummy. The transparent overlays look fantastic on the white of the page. Shelly is known for her line work and mark-making, which beautifully translate into letterpress. It is the artist's first collaboration with Smokey Road Press. Prints are shipped in tubes, protected by archival interleaving paper.
