Vertical Carnival: Hyper-Detailed Letterpress Print, by Allison Rae

My friend Allison Rae has a new print up called Vertical Carnival – a follow-up to herVertical Cities print.

You can see the beginning of it in the image (above), but definitely check out the etsy page, so you can get a larger view of the awesome slide (that runs nearly the entire height of the print).

These screenshots here don’t nearly do this thing justice. There’s a ton of attention to detail here, as I know Allison spent a great deal of time and thought putting it together:

Carnival riffs on the previous idea of the city re-imagined on a vertical plane and narrows the focus to a vertically sprawling amusement park. I really wanted to continue working in the same vein as before, with an obsessive eye toward signage + architecture, and a nod toward some of the now-retro illustration styles from various ’70s/80s cartoons of my youth. Sesame Street’s Pinball Count videos were a particular inspiration.

You can find out more about Allison by following her on Twitter and visiting her website. And of course, her work is available for purchase on Etsy.
