one of a finds: accept and be poster

CB2 is honored to present a limited-edition of accept and be posters in celebration of Gay Pride Month, June 2011.

Created in collaboration with Kennedy Prints!, a one-man letterpress printery in Gordo, Alabama, each poster is created using handset wood type and oil-based inks on eco-friendly chipboard made from lumber industry salvage.

Three simple words—accept and be—are transformed into a powerful graphic mantra radiating optimism and confidence. Each unique poster is to be appreciated for its spontaneous colors mixed by sight and variations in layout and font.

One of a Finds original works are offered one time only in a small reserve for collectors and enthusiasts. This special poster has a limited edition release of 1139—271 available online; remainder available in CB2 stores while quantities last—and Kennedy Prints! guarantees no two prints will be the same.

Kennedy Prints! and CB2 share the mission of making art and design accessible to all. We invite you to download this free “Accept and Be” graphic by Kennedy Prints! as your desktop image. Spread the good words and share.
