No One Said It Would Be Easy was created for the Just Do(ing) It, Again: The Politics of DIY and Self-Organised Culture conference which took place at The 1in12 Club on May 11th 2013.

A two page handout accompanied the print which talked about the importance of DIY Culture to the activities of The Print Project.

‘Doing It Yourself’ and Letterpress Printing are incredibly hard work a.k.a ‘No One Said It Would Be Easy’.

Printed using a combination of wood type, fancy rules and Monotype borders with the text set in Stephenson Blake’s Grotesque No.9 in an edition of 30 copies.
