obyn uses century old lead and wood type in her work to carry on the history of letterpress printing. Custom-made wooden matrices allow for her to print in unconventional ways, creating curvilinear methods to printing. She also uses photopolymer plates, created through a photographic process that enables her to transfer an image to a printing surface.
