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
