Two years after the first edition, the poster printed with movable type returns, celebrating one of the most iconic scenes from Mel Brooks’cult film: “Taffeta caro…Taffeta Tesorino.”

This poster has been printed with a selection of wood and lead characters from my archive, found in Italy a little over herewolf and a little over therewolf.
More than 20 different types (spanning 70 years of evolution of the typeface – ranging from the early twentieth century until around the 1970s), produced by Italian Foundries (Xilografia Internazionale, Xilografia di Verona, Fonderia Nebiolo Torino, Fonderia Tipografica Cooperativa Milano). Some names: Donatello, Aurora, Linea, Forma, Metropol, Estro, Quirinus, Eurostile, Stilo, Slogan, Semplicità, Barnum, Raffaello, Bodoni, Imperatrice, Inglese, Landi and others still waiting to be identified.
A Limited Edition of only 40 numbered, stamped and signed copies, printed on handmade paper created by Emporium Athestinum of Este (PD) with a mixture of cotton cellulose obtained from recycled fabrics and eucalyptus cellulose.
Each copy is inked and printed by hand, so there may be small differences between the photo you see and the object you receive. No copy is perfectly identical to the other. Frame not included.
