The Last New Yorker

August 17, 2008

Eric convinced me to sell the last New Yorker street poster I had. And then sent this amazing photo of it floated & framed (its a huge piece). Thanks Eric! They were made using this wacky system I’d devised for copiers. Calculating 400% and 300% backwards gave me the “tile” which were over-lapped just enough to trim the gutter & glue them together. All this on one sheet of paper that could be copied to the back of your copied original and you’re set.

This is the grid that’s copied to the back of your original. Over the years I’d added notes like resulting sizes after trim and overlap at 400% 300% 800%, so I could be sure to fill certain spaces.
