Prize photo.We’re starting a giveaway for a wonderful collection of three hand-crafted Letterpress & Ink Hades Prints, featuring Zagreus, Megaera, and Thanatos from the award winning rogue-like game, Hades! In the crafter’s own words…

A set of 3 letterpress and ink-drawn prints of Zagreus, Megaera, and Thanatos from Hades. Each color element was printed from handset lead type and decorative pieces in a 1921 clamshell-action printing press. I love printing from handset type for the physicality of the process, the necessary problem-solving, and the engineering that went into its design and production. I’ve developed this method of pattern-printing in combination with pen illustration to integrate the typesetting with other inspirations outside of letterpress: Mucha and Beardsley, weaving and fashion and character design, big swathes of flowing fabric, etc.

Each print is 13.6 x 25.4 cm (5.375 x 10 in.), printed and drawn with archival inks.

Log in to or sign up for a donor account, then donate $6.90 (or multiples thereof) for a chance to win this prize! We’ll run this giveaway until 3:00pm PST.
