Naval Recruitment Poster

Stalwart member Mr Mitchell has been working to contextualise and reproduce a surviving recruitment poster, tweaking primary source material and replicating the typeface and letterpress has been really interesting and we think a fantastic effect created.

Although the attached image shows a test run on standard A3 copy paper Mr Mitchell has researched the correct paper stock and society member Mr Radford is VERY close to achieving a fine-finished hand laid stock – it is important to note that whilst the intention is for the piece to be period correct there is a need to ensure it appears 225yrs new!
