Note: purchasing of these prints is no longer a pre-order. Orders are currently shipping within 48 hours (excepting weekends and holidays).
In mid-September the original woodcuts from Arcanum Bestiarum will be officially debuting at the Esoteric Book Conference in Seattle. Although conference attendees will have the first opportunity to peruse the entirety of the bestiary prints including editions and artist proofs, we’re offering a pre-order on the two beasts already unveiled by Three Hands Press: the Raven and the Scorpion. More species will be made available for online ordering following the release of Arcanum Bestiarum
To thank you for your support, all pre-orders will include a signed open edition printer’s ornament. The ornaments measure 11 x 6.5″ (2 x 7″ block size) and are printed using the same ink and paper as the limited editions. Allow me to select one at random for you, or let me know your preference when ordering: Ant, Chimera, Dragon, Hawk, Lioness (seen above) Ram (may be seen here), or “Revels.”
As with all of my prints, the Bestiary series were hand-carved in wood and printed on an etching press with archival oil based-black ink on hand-torn Rives BFK paper. I print with enough pressure to emboss the thick cotton rag paper and create as solid of a print as the wood will permit. Each print is titled, signed, and numbered.
Edition of 22 on Rives BFK
10.5 x 21.75″ (4.5 x 14.25″ block)
Edition of 33
10.5 x 11″ (4.5 x 4.5″ block)
Orders may be placed via my Etsy shop.
