Dial a Head dress

Bad Hair Day? Dial a Head dress!

Octagonal letterpress relief print produced for If The Hat Fits, a portfolio print exchange housed in a hat box and organized by Toni Moseley and Kazuko Goto. Toni’s invitation roused my long standing love of hats, and launched overdue research in the history of hat styles. This resulted in a chronological game board, a printing challenge I’d wanted to take on for some time. Bon Aire and Joanna italic types on Stonehenge paper. The ink colors, like much in the history of fashion, were influenced by French tastes. 75 copies, 30 for the exchange. 10 3/4″ side to side.
