    Moth Paper Sculpture


      This moth began life as a flat block. It was hand carved to create each little line, then printed onto this paper in a vintage letterpress. It is precut and includes adhesive and instructions. 

      This kit was letterpress printed on a press from 1958 in Lancaster, Ohio. It was printed from a wood engraving- a hand carved wood block. It is printed on French paper (made in the USA) and packaged in an eco-friendly sleeve. When flat, the paper measures 8x10. The assembled kit is about 3 3/4 x 6 inches.
