Don't Eat Yellow Snow

30.00

aA4 recycled paper stock, Vansons rubber ink (sold unframed)

Hand set and hand printed letterpress using a fantastic reversed modern woodtype face possibly attributable to designer Jacob Erbar (1878-1935) (maker unknown).  Also called Whiteletter or Cameo Woodtype, the subject of snow seemed fitting.  Coupled with a salvaged zinco of a woman in some pretty hip apres skiwear (ex USA) circa 1950/60

An old add-age learnt as a 7 year old learning to ski at Mount Robert Ski Club (Nelson Lakes National Park, NZ) circa 1980.  Turns out it's a line from a Frank Zappa song 'Don't Eat The Yellow Snow',

 "Raro" or 'Jungle-juice' powder mixed with clean snow was a safer alternative.
