"Balance" Letterpress Print

from 40.00

Balanced is a limited edition fine print, hand pulled on a vintage Vandercook press with a deep, textured embossment on heavyweight 100% cotton paper.

Balanced was a sketch made with red and black Micron pens by Amos Lemon Burkhart in 2015.
The drawing was made freehand, without a pencil underlayer, and was completed in about 15 minutes. The black bicycle girl was drawn first, then red radiating lines were completed, without the use of a straight edge (by eye). This print is to actual size.

This limited Edition letterpress print was printed with custom mixed red and black Van Son ink on bright white 100% Flurry Cotton paper. The plate for this print was made from a direct scan of the original, signed, micron drawing by Amos Lemon Burkhart in 2015. Two-color prints were made slowly and patiently at Lead Graffiti Letterpress, hand pulled by Ann Morgan Lemon on a Vandercoook SP15 press. Original artist signature is printed, and each print is numbered and signed by the printer.

ALB Limited Edition letterpress prints are exclusively available from the Amos Lemon Burkhart estate collection. 100% of proceeds are divided equally: half go to scholarships for drug and alcohol treatment for young adults at the Caron Foundation, and half go to college art scholarships for students from Governor Mifflin High School and/or at Montserrat College of Art.
