The First Frame

Letterpress cards dedicated to a collection of the finest contemporary motion picture directors, and the graphic designers who greatly shaped their films. Five strips of fifteen artists combine together in a broadside, revealing a cut-out, secret message from Saul Bass, my favorite of the group, stating: “I had a strong feeling that films really began on the first frame.”

Broadside 12.5 x 10.5 inches, each individual card 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Artist’s book, letterpressed with photopolymer plate illustration, handset type, and hand-cut secret message on 2-ply Strathmore Bristol board. Signed edition of 15.
