Seven score and nine years ago, Abraham Lincoln made a speech that would be remembered by every generation and culture, and this unique T-shirt explores this. The Gettysburg Address - which is screen printed in its entirety on this Abraham Lincoln T-shirt - is only 272 words long, and is forever remembered as an eloquent expression of the ideas of freedom, democracy, and equality.

I meticulously put each one of those 272 words in a different font. Each font evokes a different era and a different culture, representing the timeless nature of Lincoln's words at Gettysburg and the memory of those words in many different kinds of people across the world.

Those words, in 272 different fonts in red, have been combined with a picture of Lincoln, in vibrant 80s purple, on a neon green background, to complete this Abraham Lincoln T-shirt design. I chose to base the design off of the picture of Lincoln that I did since it was taken less than two weeks before his speech at Gettysburg.

The entire design is screen printed onto a very soft, black, 100% cotton, made-in-the-USA American Apparel T-shirt. The design is an "oversize" design that fills most of the front of the shirt, so you can easily read the text and see the details in the fonts and the picture of Lincoln, and experience the design as I originally intended it to be. Since Abraham Lincoln would not approve of sweatshop labor, this T-shirt is sweatshop free. Now, you can contribute to the immortality of the address - and of the man who gave it - by wearing them both on a T-shirt. Neat, isn't it?
