Antique Linocut

Fold-over Note Card – Set of 10
Printed in fall, 2015

My father-in-law was kind enough to gift me this linocut. He made it in high school during the 1950s when printing presses could still be found in North American schools. I pulled prints from it a few years later and surprised him with a personalized note card set. When he opened the box it took him a minute to register that he was staring at artwork he’d created over 60 years ago.
