Midget Race Poster
PRINTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL PRINTING MUSEUM IN CARSON, CALIFORNIA
Limited Edition of 500
This poster was recreated from an original 1960's Ascot poster. We went to great lengths to match everything about the original process. We used the same clay coated chipboard as the original posters, recreated metal letter press plates, and hunted down a 1940's era printing press that would have been used to print these for special events. These posters were typically stapled to telephone poles and were a common sight around the Los Angeles area. Each poster is hand numbered and debossed with our authentic Ascot seal on a 100 year old hand engraving press. Suitable for framing.
Note: Due to the nature of letter press printing, there will be subtle and unique imperfections on each print. These characteristics would have been found on the original Ascot posters and enrich the craftsmanship of the printing process.
Packed and delivered rolled and cushioned in a heavy duty shipping tube. Shipped by lowest number available.
