Nietzsche was a German philosopher, essayist, and cultural critic. This portrait was typed on a 1960’s turquoise Smith Corona that was kindly gifted to James by a very kind lady back in January 2020. This “typiction” took approximately 8 hours to produce and features a background of X letters. The original drawing was a commission for a gentleman that resides in Germany.
The drawing was typed on 160 gsm A4 satin card paper stock back in 2020.
