52 personal projects & it includes Lead Graffiti

Craig Cutler is a former student and an world-reknowned photographer. He was undertaking a series of personal photos to shoot a new assignment each week for a year. Lead Graffiti was involved in 2 of those weeks, one where Craig came to shoot in our studio for 2 days and the final week when we contributed several parts to his film, "Words."

He was also having an exhibition of the work in Manhattan and asked if there was a way we could produce an invitation. One of the wonderful things about letterpress is your ability to actually produce pieces in small runs. Craig ran out a series of 100 prints of each of 8 images from the year's effort. We produced a small folder to hold one of the images.

We printed Craig's name and project name (CC52) onto the folders and then could easily print just the name of the particular image and the week it was from.

Turned out to be a really nice way to contribute to the work of an important person in our lives and to connect with some seriously nice imagery.
