This chunky fellow is from the modern poster lot, and like many of his S counterparts, he has lots of blue ink still hanging around in the shoulder. The whole block has taken on a rather sickly appearance from the blue and green inks that were used. The face has a few scratches but it’s in great shape overall. Even though these blocks are side grain, they are remarkably smooth and sturdy, so I’m looking forward to getting to print them this summer.
