I made this print for someone who was looking for a personal wedding gift to give to her newly married friends. She had read the poem, Bouquet by Bei Dao, at their wedding, and wanted to commemorate the sentiment. She had asked me to design the the layout of the text to look sort of woodcut and loose, but because the poem is so long and reads in a way that encourages visuals within each line, I thought it  better to individualize each line in an immediate way that set each apart, setting the type cleanly and varying size. The poem was screenprinted in 3 different colors and paper types, leaving her with a decision to make!
