GHOSTEEN SPEAKS LETTERPRESS PRINT
A unique textual presentation of the Ghosteen Speaks song lyrics, taken from the album Ghosteen (2019). The words have been edited by Nick Cave to make sense in this distinct new format – and are here designed to be read and not sung. This limited edition, signed and numbered wall artwork was created using the oldest form of printing – letterpress.
The Ghosteen Speaks Letterpress Print is limited to 300 and comes beautifully presented; housed in a glassine bag and placed in a presentation folder with a printed inner.
Created in collaboration with Something Else by Daniel Mason in the UK, a specialist in printing techniques.

'I have a thing for paper and the printed word. For these prints I rewrote some lyrics that are particularly dear to me to be printed by Letterpress, a printing technique from the 15th century. Thanks to Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the Letterpress, and a few people in between - I think they look beautiful!'
