Bramble 1970 Poster by Richard Smith (Arnolfini Gallery,1970)


Artist: Richard Smith

This poster is extraordinary - ingeniously cut and produced, it’s officially not flat. It reproduces Richard Smith’s Bramble lithograph of 1970.

The poster is made of two sheets – a top layer with the type, the green and some of the violet rectangle and a bottom layer of violet paper with a strip that feeds through to the top layer, resting across the surface in a diagonal left to right direction. The poster – its really more object than poster – exemplifies the production techniques of Petersburg Press, who made it for Richard Smith’s retrospective of graphics and multiples at the Arnolifini Gallery, Bristol, 1970. Smith was far ahead of his time.

Approximate dimensions: 76.2 x 56cm
