This edition was hand printed on an antique Columbian handpress and an antique Washington handpress by Brad Keech of Pressure Printing. These handpresses were commonplace in the late 1800′s and were replaced in the 1900′s by more modern methods of printing. The traditional process is a painstaking one that produces one impression at a time, resulting in beautiful prints with depth and dimension not achievable by any electronic method. All of the prints were printed on acid free cream Rives BFK fine printmaking paper.
