My diagram style line drawings of midcentury modern chairs, screenprinted by hand in silver & black on big, retro manila and red file folder cards, using sunlight to expose the stencils.

Whenever I'm shopping, I check the bottom shelves -- because, just like the cereal aisle at the supermarket, that's often where underdog products are kept -- and that's how I found a battered box of fantastic manila file folder cards (with their cheerful red sign-in lines and "out" tab) that were used for for analog file management back in the day. I printed the background in semi-transparent shimmery silver ink then, in rich black, my illustrations of three retro chairs I rescued from Los Angeles thrift stores.

This is a limited edition of just 95 quirky, hand-pulled screenprints.
