Punctuated Weaving is a suite of five letterpress prints by Alexandra Janezic. Inspired by the process of weaving, each print is composed of individual lines of punctuation repeatedly printed to create a woven textual piece. Each line of type in the series was printed using hand-set metal type impressed into Somerset Satin paper. The suite of prints is accompanied by a letterpress printed title page and epigraph by Robert Lax, housed in a clamshell box handmade by the artist. There are twenty-five copies in the edition.
Punctuated Weaving looks to imbue letterpress printing with a meditative property, to make a ‘drawing’ of the physical time spent printing. Static lines of metal type are constructed to create images imitating the irregularities of fabric. The prints serve as a timeline of the artist’s decisions and movements, emphasizing the repetition involved in creating a series of multiples.
