Peek #41 thru #47

A series of four 4-color illustrations have been drawn and are being created as linocut prints to accompany a short poem, Art of the Apple which is being typeset by hand and letterpress printed directly on the illustrations.

The “Moon” print, which is the fourth of the four illustrations, was made by carving two linoleum blocks, using a brayer to ink them and then pulling each print through and un-inked Vandercook press. After the blocks were printed, the printers chop mark (lower right corner) and the last line of the poem were hand set, hand inked and printed, also on an un-inked Vandercook press.

Next, we move on to the “Apple” illustration, the third of the four illustrations.

Stay tuned for upcoming peeks, which will include glimpses of the next steps in this process and watch our progress as we drink more tea and continue working on Art of the Apple.

  2. This is quite nice. I recently started growing an apple seed that had sprouted in an apple I was eating. It’s quite prolific at putting out leaves, and although I know it will likely never bear sweet fruit, or any fruit at all, I don’t mind; it’s such a beautiful little seedling.
