America The Beautiful

Posted by tb4

Great new print from the Tugboat Printshop, "America The Beautiful." You can get it over at tugboatprintshop.com for $185, check all the details below.

"AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL" is a 26" x 34" color woodcut printed on Heavyweight Ivory Somerset paper. This image is made from the layered printing of 5 individually hand-drawn, hand-carved woodblocks using pin registration to align the colors. We will continue to print this edition in small batches over the course of the summer, to fill the ultimate edition size of 200 prints.

"AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL" was conceived after TBPS received a personal invitation to show in MANIFEST HOPE DC, an art exhibition celebrating the inauguration of our 44th President. Paul + Valerie completed "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL" in a 2 week window before the opening of the show in Washington DC on January 16. MANIFEST HOPE DC ran from January 17-19, 2009.
