Homage to the Stamp

This poster print (21.5" x 29") commissioned by Tiny Showcase and created by Gavin Potenza is S-A-weet. Find it here and it is only $12.

Here is what Gavin said about his stamp designs, "The stamps were each inspired by various elements surrounding the culture of the countries, including the Swiss-born color theorist Johannes Itten, old French Tarot cards, the Brazilian boardwalk Copacabana, German designer Otl Aicher, Mayan patterns, the Swiss Alps, sweater patterns, and op artist Victor Vasarely."

I am all together bummed that this letterpress edition is sold out. boo.
