Paper; red background with gold figures. The figures are copies of famous brasses that are oriented in different ways
Historical Context:
This poster includes images of funerary brasses from different churches in England, ranging in time from 1300s-1500s. The poster is trying to recreate the style of a brass rubbing, which is a technique where a piece of paper is placed over the original brass and rubbed carefully with a wax crayon so that an impression is left on the paper.
