Item Description

"A lonely over-wintering canoe receives a nightime visit from one summer friend."

This 8.5" x 11" giclee is printed on museum-quality 100% cotton paper and is corner mounted on foamcore.

At the western extremity of Lake Superior, the Kenspeckle Letterpress makes its home in Duluth, Minnesota (The Paris of the North). Kenspeckle is a Scottish word meaning easily recognisable or distinctive, and can be applied both to this unique corner of the globe and to the quaint conceits of modern design which Rick Allen and Marian Lansky produce in their cast iron & digital fabrefactory.

Rick works back in the 19th Century, printing his wood engravings and lino cuts in small editions using multiple blocks and hand coloring, whilst over in the 21st Century, Marian prepares limited edition giclees of Rick’s prints as well as her own.
