America the Beautiful
"AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL"
24" x 32" Color Woodcut on Heavyweight Ivory Somerset Paper.
Paul Roden + Valerie Lueth, 2009.
Ta-da!!! We finished proofing the color for "America the Beautiful" late, late last night (or, more specifically, early this morning at 7:00am). So, needless to say we are exhausted. But we are SO excited about how the color printed--the registration on all 5 blocks was basically flawless and the image, well, we remain absolutely flabbergasted. It looks SO awesome.
Above is the first professional photograph we've had taken of our work (by someone other than ourselves, so many thanks to Larry Rippel for such a great shot on such short notice!
The full color print is now available for purchase in our online store!
Stay tuned for more elaboration on this post tomorrow-ish :) Yay!
