This is an 8" by 10" letterpress print of a line from Marilynne Robinson's book Gilead. The words are from the book's narrator, John Ames, a small-town minister who is writing a series of letters to his young son.
The print's illustration is from another passage of the book, when Ames describes a young couple who get wet when the young man jumps up and pulls on a wet tree branch.
This print is hand set with metal type and printed on an 1892 Golding Pearl press. The illustration is a linocut carving from an original drawing I did, and the raindrops are each handpainted over the linocut with watercolor.
Each print is slightly different, due to its handmade nature. It is printed on cream Strathmore printers' paper.
