Limited-edition 'Samuel Reeves' trade poster,

limited edition of 50, published by Ian Mortimer,

£150 each

these posters are printed with original wooden types from the London firm of Samuel Reeves Ltd (c.1840-1971) using Reeves’ own Victorian Albion hand press.  Samuel Reeves were for generations the foremost London printers of trade posters and shop tickets and their catalogues offered all sorts of printed material for many trades. They are printed by Ian Mortimer OBE at his Hackney workshop, using original specification ink on the correct type of paper as used by Reeves. Ian Mortimer is the foremost craft typographer and hand printer in the UK and has one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of wood printing types and Victorian cast iron hand presses. Due to the very time consuming and labour intensive process these posters have been printed to a very limited edition of 50 pieces.
