One of 150 copies of which this is one of 120 numbered copies bound thus by Chris Hicks. Sixty-seven broadsheets explore some of the endless design possibilities of single-sheet printing. Presenting a wide range of typefaces, borders and illustrations, these miniature posters range from the whimsical to the serious, representing more than six years of single sheet printing of poetry, prose, and a fair bit of the more interesting jobbing work. Hung out to Dry includes handbills, keepsakes, posters, adverts and pieces printed for the sheer love of printing, along with a descriptive text putting them in context. By discussing the design choices made and identifying the types and the borders, the book works as a type specimen (with over sixty faces shown), a record of six years of thought about typography and design, and is a testament to the inspirational effects of ephemera. The prospectus is loosely inserted.
