My Kind of Town

Featured here is an elaborately illustrated 7-color poster with printer ornaments and type, entirely handset by the team at Starshaped Press. Their poster is included in the Flag and Seal Revisited exhibit, honoring Chicago's 175th birthday, currently on display at Expo 72 until August 26th. Designers and printmakers were invited to reinterpret the official city seal which included the words, URBS In HORTO, or City in a Garden. The skills and talent of Team Starshaped have been thoroughly tested with their typographic portrayal of the Chicago waterfront surrounded by tall buildings, trees, foilage, fountains and flowers. You can find a few of these prints for sale right now on Etsy. This is my kind of type town.
