Armenian Poem Print

This print was designed for my “THINK INK!” Intro to Print-Making class. I wanted to design something personal related to my culture. I designed this print in light of the upcoming 107th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The challenge was to create something combining multiple methods of printmaking. I used three methods beginning with the Risograph which involved digitally drawing the 5 different coloured layers and using the limited colours available to create the orange or purple that you see. I then handset the poem to be printed on the Vandercook Press, which involved making sure the left margin was angled to align with the angle created by the colour pillars. The final touch involved gold foil stamping the poet’s name into the paper to create the final product..
