Bree is a spirited and standout font that takes its inspiration from handwriting. It's sure to grab your reader's attention, especially in short paragraphs.
The project theme FOR 2023 is 'Animal Magic' as this fits the two charities that the project will be supporting and fundraising for - healthy breakfast in schools (Magic Breakfast) and community kitchens and creative learning (Edible Rotherhithe).
By May 2023, all 100 printmakers will have designed and printed their interpretation of this theme.
Please search the hashtag #thoughtpressproject to find out what our printmakers have been up to and see process sketches, designs, carving and in some cases finished prints, some of which are already available to buy in the shop part of this website!
So go on, have a look, buy a print and help raise some money today for Magic Breakfast and Edible Rotherhithe!

BRINGING PRINTMAKERS TOGETHER
This project began in 2021 - for more information you can go to https://www.essdee.co.uk/thought-press-project/ to find out more about the origins.
The organiser, Sanira Emon reached out to people over Instagram during lockdown.
This project is as much about building friendships, connections and artistic influences, and feeling like part of a bigger movement in creativity and kindness, as it is about raising money for charities - in 2021 the charities were Mind and Heart Felt Tips.
Here are some of the lovely comments from the printmakers involved:
Sharon Hiley @sonabeam said of her partnership with Allie Clubb @print.clubb "Thank you, it's nice to have arty contact in isolating times!"
Hannah Bigley @hannahelisabethbigley said of her new printmaking pal Rachel Lloyd @rachlloydpress, "I'm so glad to be a part of ... something so big, and for such a good cause...it's been so nice chatting to Rach... that's such a good idea to match people up."
