Laika, Felicette, Baker, Strelka & Belka, and Ham. The good boys and girls of the space race.
Here at the Secret Planet Print Shop, we use screen printing to bring our galactic illustrations to paper. The process employs ink passing through a silk mesh screen, except in areas blocked by a light-hardened polymer coating. Wherever the ink contacts the paper, the image is laid one colour at a time. Due to the nature of hand printed products, these prints may have small imperfections or variations in colour. That's just the beauty of handmade products!
This 3 colour screen print was designed and printed by hand in our Toronto studio.
The print measures approximately 16"x 20" on 100 lb natural cover stock.
