Description

This is one bookish lion! He enjoys curling up next to his favorite tree, perhaps with a cup of chai tea, and diving into the stories of other lions (and tigers and bears, oh my!). He will be a lovely addition to a child's bedroom, or for that matter any room inhabited by a lover of animals and books.

I've adapted this King of Beasts from my original drawing. He is printed on Kinwashi paper using vegetable oil-based ink, which is both permanent and environmentally friendly. Kinwashi is a translucent yet strong traditional Japanese paper made from manila fibers with visible bark inclusions which give it the lovely texture you see in the first 2 photographs (other photos show him printed on cotton paper). It is both strong and lightweight, which makes it wonderfully responsive to hand printing.

This open edition print will come to you numbered, titled and signed in graphite pencil. I hand carve each block and print using a brayer and wooden spoon, which allows the varying hand pressure to show on the finished image such that no 2 are exactly alike (you may be able to see this in some of the group photographs); there will be small variations between prints due to this hand printing process.

Materials & Dimensions:
Paper: Japanese Kinwashi Paper, 30 gsm, manila fiber
Ink: Vegetable oil-based ink, permanent, lightfast
Dimensions: image is approx. 8x10, paper is 9x12 including a white border for framing

Your Literary Lion will be packed securely in a padded envelope sandwiched between cardboard, with a protective glassine sheet. I ship by USPS, either First Class Mail or Priority, depending on the size of the package. Maryland residents will have 6% sales tax added.
