The Brooks Museum here in Memphis is having an exhibit they're calling "Armed + Dangerous." It's weaponry through the centuries. The museum shop has been carrying my letterpress cards and asked if I could come up with a card or three for this exhibit, since they don't have any official postcards for it. With my show coming too, this is the first one I've managed (their show also goes up this week), but once I get my own show hung, I hope to do at least one more to complement it.
Sadly, my letterpress type so far does not seem to include a "+", so here's the back of the card:
My "e" also seems to be doing something funky here, but I think I got that fixed. (The one I scanned is an early throw-away for spacing -- the real ones are still drying on the racks.)
