Printing the Winter Sky

Courtesy NASA, public domain. Greetings All,

As the late-Autumn days roll into quickening, deepening darkness, Summer stars set and the constellations of Winter begin to rise. Our old friend, Orion, is now climbing above the hill to the east, beginning his hunting season.

A lifelong love of stargazing, combined with the creative crisp of these clear cold nights, has inspired a new series of block prints here at St Brigid Press. The first is a carving of the constellation Orion rising in lunar light ~ "Hunter's Moon."

"Hunter's Moon" block print.

Handcarved by Emily Hancock into a linoleum block, "Hunter's Moon" is printed with night-blue ink on the Poco Proofing Press in limited edition. Each print is signed, numbered, and double-matted (finished, framable size is 8"x10"). To order, please see our Online Store.

With thanks, and keep an eye to the sky!
