Emily Dickinson - Making a Prairie


Shipping to United States: Free

Letterpress print of Emily Dickinson's poem XCVII, from her nature poems.

8.5" x 11"

Hand printed in Nashville, Tennessee, at the wonderful Sawtooth Print Shop. This print was hand brayered, meaning that the colors were applied by hand for each print, making each one slightly different and unique. The bee is a hand carved piece from the Sawtooth collection, and the type is antique metal type.

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
-Emily Dickinson

For me, this poem evokes the power of the imagination and the creative mind. It would make a great gift for the creative person in your life!

I sent this print to a friend for her birthday, and when I visited her recently, saw it framed in her home. Such a stunning print! Sarah has a gift for capturing the rhythm and whimsy or meaning of words in the visuals of her prints (color, space, type, form, embellishments). In our own home, our own print of hers is the most often remarked upon piece of art. A wonderful conversation starter or muse. If I could I would cover my home in them.
