afro-bafro posters

New two-colour specially printed posters just released (march, 2014).
Portraying two of Ethiopias great musicians, Hailu Mergia and Mulatu Astatke, these posters were printed as a mix of modern offset and ol’skool bookprinting. The cold red colour is printed traditionally, and holds the usual gradients within the colour. The black is printed by help of an old-fashioned cliche, that puts not only black colour, but also a mark in the paper. Hence the technique, the black part holds no gradient, only black or nothing.
The prints are 66 by 47 cm, and numbered from 1 to 100.
