Fresh Prints @ Klekolo

Our featured Artist this month is

Fresh prints of CT.

Letterpress Art Prints

Created by Katie & Berk Ziegler

“Letterpress is the oldest method of printing where the artwork is embedded into the paper using “relief” type printing plates.  A “relief” plate is one where the area to be printed is physically raised from the surface of the plate.  The plates are hand-set and then inked by the press operator allowing the design and lettering to be imprinted onto the paper.  The letterpress embosses the design into the surface of the paper creating a textured, three-dimensional effect. “

At Klekolo Fresh prints is featuring their Dictionary Prints.

“These prints are definitely a conversation starter and look fabulous as a wall hanging. Each design is carefully selected and then printed on vintage dictionary paper giving it that beautiful golden color that only comes from age. Since we use real book pages some unevenness or spotting occurs, this only adds another layer to the print, making each one truly unique.”

Our Artist through the month of January is Jake Urban .

You can find him on Facebook

And on his blog Jake Urban Art

“My medium of choice is photography. I take digital photographs, process them, and then turn them into 1:1 scale negatives in Photoshop. From there I can print them as a variety of modernized historic photographic prints such as kalitypes and cyanotypes. It is an interesting process where modern technology mixes with historic processes and art mixes with chemistry.” Taken from Jake’s bio.

Jake’s work will be on exhib at Klekolo through January come on by and see.

We have a special coffee that just came in. We will be serving it Monday morning  early.

It will not be on tap all day so come in before 9am to taste this.

Colombia – Yellow Bourbon

This is a micro lot from Finca Las Margaritas located in the district of Caicedonia in the Valle de Cauca of Colombia. This bean is a Mutant   of Red “Bourbon” and Amarelo de Boutacuto” typica”.

This limited supply bean serves up a sweet elegant cup delicate in the mouth. Sharing flavors of soft fruits, florals, vanilla and the earthiness of a Colombian coffee.

This is a special batch when it is gone its gone.
