how it's made: peace posters

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

Each poster is to be appreciated for its spontaneous colors mixed by sight and variations in layout and font—Kennedy Prints! guarantees no two prints will be the same.

So it’s no surprise that the tons of steel salvaged from Ground Zero are being re-used for these same inspirational ends.

In 2009 for example, 7.5 tons went into building the mighty USS New York.

And since 2001, the Port Authority of NY stored and allocated the balance—approximately 1200 pieces—to various locations across the nation to help create some 225 memorials.

To see a few, visit inhabit NYC—devoted to green living and forward-thinking urban designs, planning and environmental policy.
