Eilen Jewell "Gypsy" - Moonlit Lake letterpress print
The second of the two posters made for Eilen's latest album "Gypsy". Inspired by the lyrics in the song Who Else But You:
How far can we swim in the lake, in the moonlight?
I based this scene partly on my favorite lake here in NY, Keuka Lake, along with some of the alpine lakes in Idaho, where Eilen lives. I love how big the stars and moon look when you are out in nature, far away from the city lights.
This 3 color print combines linoleum carvings and hand-set vintage wood type. Printed on a beautiful black paper by a NY state paper mill. The trees, stars, moon and type are printed with a shimmery gold metallic ink.
