FRACTIONS


What to do with lots of wood type fractions? Find a fitting rhyme, like this children’s poem. The numbers become bursts of color and abstract marks complimenting the light-heartedness of the of the text.

Single sheet broadside, on rag paper in multiple colors. Letterpress, measuring 22.5 x 30 inches (57 x 76.25 cm). Signed and numbered. Six are in mounted in single fold-out duplex cover board, with title print in letterpress. Total edition of 25.

My artist books, broadsides, and loose-leaf editions are published in very small numbers, as low as five. All are hand-printed and hand-bound (in case of books) by me, all are signed and numbered. While I am trying to be perfect, I am human, not a machine. Some variations in the editioned work are to be expected due to the processes, materials, and the artist’s change of mind. It is exactly what makes the work collectible: each piece is an original work of art. The pieces employ printmaking like original etchings, woodcuts, carborundum, screen prints, monotype, monoprint, and letterpress. Nothing is produced using digital reproduction methods.

$675 single flat sheet, $750 as fold-over in covers as shown.
