Description

The Drop Bombs letterpress poster by Beautiful Angle was created in April of 2014. The image of the plane and the outlines of the flower bombs was created using bent soldering wire glued to plywood. The orange flowers were cut from printer’s blanket, a rubbery fabric used in offset printing. The text was printed using a combination of vintage wood type and vintage lead type.

The words on the poster read as follows:

Design a bomb so well-crafted that the blast pattern
forms a Fibonacci sequence. Build a bomb that
knocks down buildings and grows trees. Drop a
bomb that kills the bad people but leaves the good
ones, plus you and me. Fill the nosecone with
shrapnel of black-eyed Susans. The seeds will
pierce the ground. Shoots will burst through the
soil. Blossoms will explode in yellow and black.
