Letterpress is the oldest form of printing. In this method, a surface with raised letters is inked and pressed to the paper. Typically, metal type has been used but today we use polymer plates. We chose this methods because of the hand-made qualities and historical nature of letterpress print.
The poppy has came to represent the immeasurable sacrifice made by those who served in the great wars and later conflicts. A long association with Remembrance Day, the scarlet corn poppies (Popaver rhoeas) serve as a memorial symbol to the fallen, as realised by the Canadian surgeon John McCrae in his poem In Flanders Fields.
