This is a print of my painting of a wolf on a library card catalog card for the book “Call of the Wild” by Jack London. Published in 1903, the book chronicles the hardships endured by Buck, a dog kidnapped from a ranch in California and sold to become a sled dog in Alaska. He survives under brutal owners, learns to love a wise owner but then strikes out into the wild with a wolf pack after his kind owner is killed.

London gathered much of the background material for the book when he worked under extreme conditions in Alaska, seeking gold. I just loved this book as a kid, along with London's classic “White Fang.”

The print is done on ivory card stock paper to replicate the look and feel of card catalog cards, which librarians typed up on index cards. The print measures 3 x 5 inches, the same as a real card. Ships within 1-3 days of receipt of order with the print in a clear archival sleeve tucked into a protective cardboard photo mailer.
