Wandering Heart

SENIOR / all

By Alison Entsminger

This letterpress print gives new life to one of the lines from an old hymn, Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, through expressive typography and bold color. It was printed using a suicide carving method on a Lino block. Fluorescent orange ink, the base layer, sets the tone for the wanderlust of the phrase, while the texture and fill of a layer of darker orange adds energy. A forest green grounds the final layer of the type. The variety of the feel of the words adds movement and reflects the emotion of the phrase.
