Early Bird • Letterpress and Linocut Print
Who wants to get up early for just worms? My perky robin reminds us all of the many benefits of being an early riser! The text reads:
EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM
AND FIRST PICK OF THE DONUTS
Part of my bird series, the robin is inspired by the birds I see in my neighborhood. They seem to arrive all at once, and when they do, I know the spring flowers aren't far behind. As much as I love winter, by they time the robins make their way up from Florida, they are a welcome site!
This 5 color print was made from a 4 color linoleum reduction cut, hand-set metal type (in a circle!), and pressure print. Reduction cuts are made by carving into the same block, thereby destroying the block as it is printed. That means there is no going back and reprinting the image.
Print measures 18" wide x 24" tall
Printed on Rives BFK white paper (acid-free), a premium 100% cotton fine printmaking paper
Signed and numbered limited edition of 125
As with all hand printed items, variations in color and texture may occur.
Print will ship in a tube
