This letterpress print was hand-printed on an antique printing press using 100% cotton paper (118 lb. cover weight) and a dark grey rubber-based ink. The print features a beautiful and thoughtful quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The design was made into a photopolymer plate and the plate coming in contact with the soft cotton paper produced a beautiful tactile impression. The print measures 5 x 7" and comes with a kraft envelope.

It could be framed or gifted as is.
