We’re nearing the end of spring semester for a lot of us and we’re bringing back All These Theses, posts featuring the work from the class of 2014. Are you graduating or know someone who is? Send us some pics of your thesis shows/prints at firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe we’ll include them in a thesis post. Please spread the word. http://www.printeresting.org/2014/04/16/call-for-thesis-work/
