Jessica Spring: "One of a twin series of prints inspired by wise words from characters in Twin Peaks, made in collaboration with Grundoon Press. A quote from Agent Dale Cooper is handset and letterpress printed with some damn good wood type, border & stars. Carefully handset, the wood type is overprinted with translucent white steam."
Agent Dale Cooper was the protagonist in the television series Twin Peaks. He is an eccentric FBI agent in Twin Peaks to investigate the murder of a teenage girl. He has some quirky mannerisms and a sense of humor. He loves a good cherry pie along with a "damn fine cup of coffee."
