This print is letterpress printed onto archival cotton paper.

This is one of my most ambitious prints yet, using 7 separately carved linoleum blocks, 6 separate colors, and a split fountain inking technique on my Vandercook letterpress to achieve the ink gradients.

This is a view looking east at Donner Lake (near Truckee, CA) from above Interstate 80. You can see Mount Rose in the far distance.

This is an original print, not a reproduction.

Each print is titled, signed and numbered in a limited edition of 100.
Image size: 15" x 11.5."

Comes in a white mat.

And free US shipping!

This print is part of a long-term series highlighting the animals, birds, plants and landscapes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California and Nevada.

All of my prints are individually letterpress printed in multiple colors from several hand-cut linoleum blocks. I print these linoleum blocks on an antique SP15 Vandercook letterpress here in my studio. Each color of each individual print is hand fed separately though the letterpress, so for a limited edition of 100 prints that have five colors in them, I will press paper through the letterpress 500 times.

The greeting cards and handmade books I sell are also all letterpress printed, some from my collection of antique wood type. Everything at Meridian Press is created using all cotton archival papers.

I also do custom letterpress work!

I love everything about Meridian Prints' artwork - especially as a 3rd generation Nevadan - and this piece really makes me happy - my fourth purchased, first online through Etsy. The piece was framed beautifully and shipped wonderfully. I received it quickly and know I will enjoy it in my home for many years to come. Well done!

Beautiful cards! My husband and I love woodblock prints and Japanese style prints so this was the perfect aesthetic for his birthday card!
