The final 8 Faces poster has been designed by… Erik Spiekermann!
We are very excited to reveal that the designer behind poster number eight is none other than Erik Spiekermann! 
Not only has Erik designed the poster, but he’s also hand-printed it himself on his Korrex proof press in Berlin. Set using original wood type, the poster combines Erik’s signature colours (red and black on white of course!). Not only does the print feature the 8 Faces blind-embossed stamp, but this time around each one has also been signed by the artist.
Here’s a quick preview. We’ll reveal the whole thing next Wednesday.
Available to buy at 4pm BST on Wednesday 24th July

The final 8 Faces poster: Designed & printed by Erik Spiekermann

For the final poster in our series of limited edition artwork prints, we’ve done something truly special: number eight has been designed and hand-printed by Erik Spiekermann on his Korrex proof press in Berlin, using original wood and metal type. Above, you can also see some shots that Erik took of the printing process.

As with our previous prints, each copy is individually numbered and bears the 8 Faces blind-embossed stamp, but additionally each print has also been hand-signed by Erik!

Due to the high number of customers who pre-ordered all eight pieces of art, have less than 50 to sell, so be very quick!

All orders will ship in the last week of July, packed in protective cardboard tubes.
