Graphic Letterpress Prints Using an Everyday Object

We love anything patterned, graphic and design-y (yes, that's a technical term). And we have a perfect wall in our entryway for one of these single color letterpress prints. But beyond the subtle, pleasing pattern in these prints, we love them for an entirely different reason...what was used to make the patterns. Can you guess what it is?

Dice! What an ingenious idea! Etsy shop Stukenborg arranges hundreds of dice onto the bed of his Vandercook 317 letterpress to create his interesting patterns. Ink is then rolled directly onto the face of the die for each impression. Each print is a limited edition print with prices ranging from $50 to $250.
