Carry Your Heart

Carry Your Heart

from 20.00

this is a fine art print of an excerpt from the e.e. cummings poem, "i carry your heart with me." —

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Process: I hand-set this original layout with vintage, movable type, with the original prints letterpressed on a vintage Heidelberg Tiegel letterpress machine. These are digital prints of the original letterpress, showing the variations in the pressing, and oh-so perfect imperfections of the handset type.

Material: Reproduced with archival ink on thick, bright white 100% cotton cold press watercolor paper with a delicately textured surface. Foil prints are pressed with real gold foil in your choice of 3 foil colors. Unframed.

Shipping: All prints are packaged with a clear protective sleeve. Smaller prints ship with cardboard backing in a rigid mailer, and larger prints ship rolled in a cardboard tube.

All prints SHIP FREE to U.S. destinations.
