El Rey del Letterpress

Written by Joshua Lurie-Terrell on May 20, 2004

A painter and printmaker I’ve always admired as much for his work as for how much fun he has with it, James Barnett (a.k.a. El Rey del Art) recently used two classic printers ornaments available from Briar Press (and originally sold by ATF, among other vendors) as the basis for a new painting. “The Ever-Declining Omnipresence of a Formerly Prevalent Communications Medium” (or “Bunnybutt”) is available for $300.
