Limited edition of 100
This is an archival pigment print from the original relief print that was first produced in 2009. The tree planted by the founders of the Southport Library in Connecticut and harvested by the library in 2010. It was 109 years old. White oak is a very hard wood and can live for a very long time in the right conditions. This is clearly seen by the consistent growth and even spacing of growth rings year after year. This section of tree came from the trunk and was pruned in its 28th year then left alone to grow untouched by man. In 2010 after my first printing the block is left to rest in my studio and allowed to check throughout a natural drying process. Oak will always check unless it is kiln dried.
It is printed on 100% cotton Hahnemule Museum Etching paper, weight is 350 gsm, and is certified archival. This archival reproduction is slightly smaller from the original print and comes unframed.
