Description

An original, hand-printed, hand-painted letterpress print—this is not a reproduction! This piece is part of the “Local Conditions” series, which depicts Washington’s Mt. Rainier from a variety of different vantage points.

In this piece, the view overlooks the eastern face of Mt. Rainier and the Yakima Valley, famous for its many vineyards and apple, pear and peach orchards. Washington state has been the top apple producer in the United States since the 1920s. Here, the apple and Mt. Rainier are equally well-known icons of our state.

This artwork was letterpress printed by hand on an antique Vandercook No. 4 press, on soft white Rives Lightweight paper. Each print in the edition was then painstakingly hand-painted with watercolor. Each print is numbered, signed and dated, and labeled with the latitude/longitude coordinates of the exact location the illustration was drawn from.

Edition of 50 prints
Paper size: 6 x 7.5 inches (15.2 x 19.1 cm)
Image size: 3 x 5 inches (7.6 x 12.7 cm)

This piece was printed in a limited edition, so once the edition sells out, it will not be reprinted. So snag your copy while you can!
