Fill It (Swing print) - With Partial "Depth" overprint - One of a Kind Letterpress Print
This product is sold out
I'm just going to say it- this print is a weird one!
Created by over printing a portion of the "Depth" design from 2013, and "Fill it" from the same year, this
The quote contained in the "Depth" design is:
“You can’t control the length of your life, but you can control its width and depth.”
and the quote contained in the "Fill It" design is:
"However, I am no nihilist. I am not even a cynic. I am, actually, rather romantic. And here’s my idea of romance:
You will soon be dead. Life will sometimes seem long and tough and, god, it’s tiring. And you will sometimes be happy and sometimes sad. And then you’ll be old. And then you’ll be dead.
There is only one sensible thing to do with this empty existence, and that is: fill it. Not fillet. Fill. It.
And in my opinion (until I change it), life is best filled by learning as much as you can about as much as you can, taking pride in whatever you’re doing, having compassion, sharing ideas, running(!), being enthusiastic. And then there’s love, and travel, and wine, and sex, and art, and kids, and giving, and mountain climbing … but you know all that stuff already.
It’s an incredibly exciting thing, this one, meaningless life of yours."
This was the only print created combining these two images. The result is a bit abstract and could go either way in terms of orientation. It was actually one of the "setup" prints that Tim used to verify that the print plate was in the proper position and was evenly laid out.
It was created by hand over the course of several weeks. We will never reproduce this design in this format. It is hand signed and includes a letterpressed certificate of authenticity.
