"Editor Echo" - Wendy Shaft Block Printed Images
The Wendy Shaft Block Printed card line was retired in 2013 due to circumstances beyond our control. These images are relief printed from 3 block hand carved blocks, in succession and are NOT reproductions. Each has variations as they were done in small runs on a Miehle Vertical Letterpress. They are available only as matted prints.
Note: This is a portrait of author, Jo-Ann Mapson's dog, Echo. I met Echo in Alaska. She was so smart she was hired!!!!
A letterpress, a machine that precedes offset printing and digital output, was developed in 15th century by Johannes Gutenberg, using movable type, hand-carved blocks with a screw press.
Image Size: 5" by 7", Presentation: 8" by 10" cream matt.
