When initially starting my Zine project I wanted to show how different printing techniques look in a microscopic view. Due to letterpress being relief printing using solid tones of colour when look at under a microscope you just see solid colour unlike offset printing and lithographic printing where you often see halftones. Since I had to do these prints anyway I decided to experiment with using letterpress for my cover. Although I later scrapped this idea due to it not looking too great in the way I implemented it and it not logically suiting my zine I definitely liked the experience and think I may use it at a later date.
