… 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?)
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.
