From a limited edition of 20, this cheery letterpress print by Naomi S. Adams Velasquez is bound to be a favorite! Perfect for any book lover.

The letterpress pressure print images were created on a Vandercook SP15 Print Press at my recent residency at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts in Lincoln City Nebraska. I created the images with a special printing plate material and printed them with split fountain green and dark grey inks. I created the handmade abaca paper with map and book inclusions in Pocatello, Idaho. Each print is signed and dated on the back. The image size is 5"x7" and the paper size is 7"x11".

While they are extremely similar, the handmade paper inclusions and ink level on the press make it impossible for each book to be exactly the same. I think it adds charm. This listing is for one print from my 20 print edition. This listing does not include a frame.

I also have a limited edition of 10 notecards of a cropped version of this print, but those are the only items that exist. The printing plates have been discarded.

Gorgeous and great yardage! Little expensive for individual skeins of floss given I could pay that much for hand dyed lace yarn.
