Lyric Letterpress Poster, 11" x 17"
Fashioned for one of our most popular song, this lyric poster features hand drawn swallows carved into linoleum blocks for printing and hand set type printed on a vintage Vandercook letter press. Printed on rich, fibrous paper with a deckel edge, these prints are 11 inches wide and 17 inches high, which includes a small white border.
You tuned the strings in my heart
To an old and arcane key
I think that you may know the secret chord that has been mystifying me
Th one I only hear in dreams
You've been the cause of many fires;
"These are necessary burns"
I think that you may hold the secret spark, the one that lights when splinters turn
The sleight-of-hand I never learned
The night had come silently
And eyes have gone dark
But you're breathing embers
You're breathing sparks
You have senses like a bird
That flies across an unknonw sea
I think that you may hold the secret chart, lit by fireflies and dreams
The ways my simple eyes can't see
