The next Shepard Fairey print will be a letterpress of Hammer and Fist. Composition is altered compared to the original version, but it seems like a trend that will happen for upcoming works in honor of Obey Giant’s 30th anniversary. Letterpress prints tend to be on the smaller size compared to usual Obey Giant prints, and this is no exception. It will be interesting to see what comes after this release! It’s been a while since the last offset print (open edition) announcement. Hopefully more reworks of classic images will be done in large format sizes as well.
