Hope is the thing with feathers - Dickinson


Shipping to United States: Free

This is an 8x10" print of the first stanza of Emily Dickinson's poem "Hope is the thing with feathers." It is hand set with vintage metal type and a hand-drawn and carved linocut of an original illustration of a purple finch.

This print is inspired by the finches that live inside of the porch light at my house. We've tried half-heartedly to run them off a time or two--we put a great house for them on our tree!--but they just keep coming back to the light. And I'll be honest, I actually love having them there and seeing them raise their fledglings every year.

The print is on cream Strathmore printers' paper. It was created in two runs on an 1892 Golding Pearl press. Because of the handmade process, each one is a little bit different!

Limited run of 25 signed and numbered prints.
