The Midway Midgets 1893 Letterpress Cards
The second edition of the Midway Midgets 1893 is now available.  The Kickstarter project was fully funded and the 20 decks were mailed in February.  This edition displays all 35 of the original characters that the BB&S Typefoundry created from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, also known as the Columbian Exposition.  These printers ornaments were based on actual people that the artist saw on the Midway and the deck includes 14 photographs from the Fair that show some of those people.


Each of the 26, 3 1/2 by 5 inch cards are 100% cotton Lettra, hand printed in black and another color, with a 'bite' to the paper from the hand set lead type and the copper dies.  They are beautiful in person and represent a huge amount of work over three years.
This is a limited edition of 130 and they are available for $40 postpaid in the US and $45 postpaid to the rest of the world.  Please send a check payable to Stuart Bradley at 105 East Glendale Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22301 or pay by Paypal at stuartbradley@comcast.net
