Promotional Materials for "The Spirits Speak"

A 5.5” x 8.5” one-sided handbill and a 2.5” x 7” souvenir ticket I created for “The Spirits Speak” , a recreation of an late 19th-century, Victorian-style seance, that employs many of the tricks and techniques originally used by practitioners of spiritualism. The show was developed and produced by the Essex National Historical Commission, and is designed to not only entertain, but teach some of the history of the local Spiritualist movement that was very popular from the post-Civil War era until the early 20th-century The handbill and ticket are both designed in a late 19th-century style, to stand out and generate attention. The handbill to be handed out on the street, and the ticket to patrons of the show. Both were offset printed in 2-color instead of 4/C process to maintain the vibrancy of the colors.
