Andrew J Steel
Hieroglyphics are one of the oldest forms of visual story telling. Traditionally scribed in stone, brick and clay, their images hold narratives over time. This work is a contemporary homage to this tradition, utilising letterpress to imprint parchment to tell a story.
This hieroglyphic work was hand drawn, converted into a steel impression plate and individually hand pressed into primed card on an original Albion Letterpress in Auckland, New Zealand.
