Limited Edition Bicentennial Print


11×17 limited edition numbered print on archival paper, unframed


In honor of Bicentennial events commemorating the first printing and the beginning of the printed Hawaiian language, Curator of Public Programs Mike Smola created a new typeset pulled on our Ramage press January 7, 2022.  The text reads “January 7 1822 to January 7 2022, Bicentennial of Printing” and has a print of the first page of the Hawaiian Primer as well as a map of Honolulu in 1822.  Preparing the frisket and setting the type with 2 wood blocks and just 48 letters and numbers took over 25 hours.  We are excited to offer this 11×17 unframed limited edition numbered print to you.
