Miss Cline Press Circa 2012


 

Miss Cline Press was a letterpress art studio in the heart of historic Central District in Seattle. The studio was closed in June 2015.
This was the Miss Cline Press website for several years.
Content is from the site's 2012 archived pages.

The new owner of this domain, a fan of the Miss Cline Press and Ana Karina Luna, wanted it to remain visible on the web.

About the Shop

PLEASE NOTE:
Our letterpress shop has been sold..
Artwork is still available for sale on Etsy.

We're about the quiet exercise of hand-setting type, the craft of hand-cut illustrations. Human fingers touch every sheet of paper – which most often have been tore by the same hands.

In the shop, cleaning, organizing and restoring of antique type, big and small, is an on-going act. Art, on its own time, is hand-fed into two gracious turn-of-the-century presses. Out comes broadsides of all sizes, and also cards, notepads, letter sets. Followed and preceded by curiosity and enjoyment.

Monoprints, 2013. Linocut and litho oil ink on Japanese Mulberry paper. 19" x 25".
This linocut was made by cutting directly onto the unsketched linoleum, preceeded only by a rough thumbnail sketch. The same applies for the reduced piece.
