This new collection of limited edition letterpress prints from Wasted & Wounded celebrates three of the most original and celebrated 'poets' of the music world, namely Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith and Nick Drake. Each of these artists have produced a body of work that reveals a unique and individual voice that sets them apart from the vast majority of songwriters. These are the kind of artists that lead where others follow, those who inspire their contemporaries and the generations to come, the kind of artists that most others can only aspire to be.

In honour of Leonard's eloquent artistry we have 'distilled' the lyrics of his debut album from 1968 'The Songs Of Leonard Cohen' into a beautiful letterpress print using the exquisite Baskerville Old Face font, printed in a gorgeous deep dark blue ink on a pure white card stock.

The incomparable Patti Smith is no less than a musical legend and for this collection, we have distilled the lyrics of Patti's debut album, 'Horses' into a striking letterpress print using the same condensed Helvetica font that appears on the album cover. The print is made on 100% recycled pure white heavyweight card stock using jet black ink.

Nick Drake's songs exude a lyricism and beauty that places him not just as a great songsmith, but as one of the great poets of his age. This letterpress print takes as its inspiration the lyrics from Nick's magnificent debut album 'Five Leaves Left' to create an elegant and sophisticated piece of typographic art. The print is designed using the classic Perpetua font using a deep green ink echoing the colours of the album sleeve.

Each print is made using 100% recycled 270gsm card stock and printed on a vintage Heidelberg cylinder letterpress machine.

Limited edition of 200, each print is individually number stamped.
