Evan Backstrom is the owner of The Rugged Press, where he creates artwork on a restored letterpress that was made in 1909. His artwork is created using a combination of salvaged historic wood and metal type, hand-carved linoleum blocks, and photopolymer plates he designed on a computer. These items are then locked into the press, where they are hand-printed one color at a time. The images are literally pressed into the paper to create a rich tactile impression.
