This is an absolutely lovely, and highly unconventional piece.  The Invitation text was letterpressed on Cranes Lettra, and then sandwiched between two layers of acrylic and riveted using brass rivets – clear for the front, and black on the back.  Setting the rivets so that they didn’t move, without breaking or marking the acrylic proved to be more than a little bit of  technical challenge at the time.

Though the pictures do not show it well, the monogram on the back of the sheet is not engraved, but is actually an inlaid piece of black marble acrylic.
