This two-color dodger was hand-printed on a Vandercook SP-15 using antique lead and wood type and ornamentation as well as a routed wood block for the gold flat. The laser-engraved display type for "LIL' BUCK SINEGAL" was manufactured in house along with the photo-wood block seen in the form here.

Partial form on press for proofing to woo dblock for gold run.

Hand-set letterpress form for the lower portion of the print.
Words on Lil' Buck Sinegal from
The best guitar slinger South Louisiana has to offer, Paul "Lil' Buck" Sinegal honed his chops as an Excello session man and Clifton Chenier's longtime guitarist. Revered for his work with Lil' Bob (of "I Got Loaded" fame), Rockin' Dopsie, and Fernest Arcenaux, Lil' Buck also recorded his own killer instrumentals - including "Cat Scream" and "Monkey in a Sack" - for the La Louisiane label in the late '60s. More recently, he co-founded the Lafayette-based all-star aggregation Cowboy Stew Blues Revue. In 1999, Lil' Buck was inducted into the Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame.
