Cyrus Highsmith: RV Neil Armstrong

In his song “Shipbuilding,” Elvis Costello asks, “Is it worth it?” We answer, “Yes.”—but Costello was singing about the Falklands War. We’re talking about this silkscreen of the RV Neil Armstrong, stationed in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. (In this instance RV stands for Research Vessel, not recreational vehicle.) Hand-printed by award-winning type designer Cyrus Highsmith in an edition of just twelve, we could not be more charmed. Historically we would have offered Cyrus’s prints framed in one of these, but they take up a lot of space here and we’re not sure anyone really cared one way or the other. But framed or unframed, this is a nice thing.
