Festina Lente Riso Print

  • Save

Made this riso print of Aldus' famous printer's mark for my Type@Cooper class from this past summer. Festina Lente means to make haste slowly — a good mantra for anyone who does creative work. In Aldus' original mark, the dolphin symbolized making haste, and the anchor, slowness. I have extra of these so if anyone wants to do an art swap, LMK! 🐬⚓
