Glossary of Printing Terms:
American Gothic

Associated with American painter, Grant Wood (1892-1942), the reference derives from Wood’s painting titled “American Gothic”.

This work, in realist style, shows a stern farm couple holding a pitchfork and staring unrelentingly at the viewer. The meaning, devoid of humor, seems to be that life is all hard work, and there is no time for aesthetics or softening emotions.

It is gothic in that it conveys a dark, disturbing message.
