Ryan Farr Pork Posters Come Pre-Smudged with Lard
Gotta get that pork poster! For those who can't afford to bid for the chance to have 4505 Meats' chef Ryan Farr conduct an in-house butchery demo (an S.F. Street Food Festival auction item), consider shelling out a little over $35 for a limited-edition letterpress porcine piggy poster that can find a permanent place in your home. For swine fans, the images could be a natural addition to a kitchen, office, or other wall space. Farr worked with Hatch Print -- one of the oldest working letterpress shops in the country -- to come up with the series of three prints.
4505 Meats Guaranteed to make any room feel more porcine.
Peruse the posters at the 4505 Web site, but keep in mind that it can be tough to choose. For this blogger, there was something about "Crispity Clouds of Porkaliciousness" that caused it to barely edge out "Frisco Pig Was a Friend of Mine." though "Pork, The Noun" wasn't without its charms. Each poster measures about 14" by 22", and is signed and fingerprinted (in lard) by Farr. Once you place an order, expect a Pay Pal invoice from 4505. The price includes the cost of shipping in a secure mailing tube.
That lard fingerprint is a cool concept. No telling if a picture framer will feel the same way.
