elemental is a celebration of the four elemental forces of nature, appreciating both the malevolence and benevolence. To signify the human struggle with the beauty, passion, and destructive power of nature, each element—Fire, Water, Earth, and Air—is accompanied with an appropriate quote by a passionate artist—Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Allen Poe, Lord Byron, and Frida Kahlo.

Utilizing the beauty of tones and textures of letterpress, elemental was handprinted on Johannot mould made paper using a combination of digitally created polymer plates and vintage wood type and bound with a printed rice paper wrap. Printed in 2006 is a numbered limited edition of 53.

Limited sale price! Originally $125.


elemental has won the 2006 American Graphic Artists award, included in "500 Handmade Books: Inspiring Interpretations of a Timeless Form" published by Lark Books, in public and private collections, and has been in many juried exhibits across the country.


Please note that while we seek to maintain consistency,
letterpress process is a handmade one and may vary
slightly from print to print, and from samples or images.

California residents, as of April 2009, please add CA sales tax of 9.5% to your order, thank you!
