Limited Edition Hand Engraved Vandercook Press Cards

December 1, 2015

For a Limited Time ONLY - 

We are sending out these Hand Engraved Linocut Vandercook cards made by AVW with all ONLINE orders at wisdomnectartea.com.

 

An interview with the Artist:

 

What inspired you to create this piece?

I identified with The Raven and the little bird is my daughter.  It is the two of us enjoying a cup of tea in the moonlight. 

 

Have you ever done this process before?

No.  It was the first time.  It was very fun and I am working on a second edition for this piece.  I would like to lighten up the raven a little bit.  

 

What is a Vandercook Press?

A Vandercook Press is the old fashioned way to print newspapers. It is an incredible art of placing fonts, letters and images, securing them in a box and running ink and a press over them.  We can make many prints rather quickly in this manner.

 

What is a Linocut?

A Linocut is a carving process to make a sort of stamp.  The image is placed in a block, inked and pressed. There are infinite possibilities to carve.  It is a very freeing and surprising art. 

 

How do we learn more?  How can a person do this art form?

There are many Letterpress Studios around these days.  There is a great one in Tempe:  The Phoenix Print Studio.  They host classes, workshops and private events.  

 

Phoenix Print Studios can be found at phxprintstudios.com
