… is finished! This print was debuted at the BMA’s Print Fair last weekend. A companion print to The Raven, it measures 15×21 inches and is printed from a woodcut and polymer plate. The woodcut (bird, title and border) was carved in aspen and inked up by hand; then the block is sent through the etching press for printing. After drying overnight, I added the text on the Vandercook- this poster size maxes out the press (time for a bigger one?)

The Albatross

Yes, the original poem is in French- many thanks to Abigail Uhteg for the French translation (which I changed slightly to my own liking.)

Available for purchase for $125; ships rolled in a sturdy tube via Fedex.

  1. Lovely albatross. My fave bird, of course. Squid being my fave fish.

    Can you post the translated poem, as edited by Ms. Lucas?
