About:  Double-sided. Smaller in size (the back is not Carson's work). Very sharp edges, corners and very unique color. Side 1: This is the only one we have that looks like this (using the darker green ). Looks to be printed over top of something else (see type lower left). Blemishes and fingerprints lower edge and paint mark all over lower third of the piece. Still, it's a pretty interesting piece. Side 2: Fairly solid green color. No design elements. Side 1: Carson embossed logo upper left. Signed “David Carson” in pencil lower right.

Following a guest lecture event at the University of Pennsylvania, Carson visited the University’s letterpress department. The result was his Rules of Grafic Design series. Carson adds, “After lecture at uof p got to visit their letterpress department, a small basement room, and play a bit!...”

For many years, Carson kept these handpicked pieces sandwiched together in a thick, well-travelled portfolio case.  Some are gritty, smudged, ink-splattered, fingerprinted, layered, torn, double-sided studies reminiscent of his earlier years. Others are simple, clear and evocative. These pieces aren't pristine. They come with defects, blemishes, tears and rubbings. They’re unique, experimental, one-of-a-kind expressions of Carson in action. He signed these pieces in the summer of 2015.
