the littlest print exchange

28 Sep

In August I completed a limited edition of 50 screenprints on the smallest size paper ever: 3″ x 3″. Titled “The True North Strong and Free” the print featured one of my favorite lines in the national anthem along with a beaver and maple leaf. You may remember the process post I wrote here about my print. Anyway, to recap, it was for an awesome printmaking portfolio that I signed up for which runs annually: “The Littlest Print Exchange.” Essentially the way any printmaking exchange works is: you print an edition that is the same size as the number of participants, so in this case 50. To see that my portfolio box with all fifty prints finally arrived this week in my postbox, was a THRILL ! I’ve got number 16 of each print, and I can honestly say that I am blown away by some of the talent within this tiny box. Honestly, it is so incredible what us printmakers can do with such a small piece of paper! For those of you who are interested in seeing all the gorgeous prints, that I am now lucky enough to own, visit the LPE website to view all the works via their online portfolio!

    wow, it looks like they really took time on the presentation of the complete collection. Did you have to pay to participate? I’m jelly.

      Yes every participant pays a fee to cover the cost of the box & shipping.

    I love this! Yours is gorgeous. The compiling of such an amazing group of artwork is so appealing to me. Thanks for sharing. I’m going to look at all of them now!

    Wow it’s so cool to see how many Canadians are in this little exchange and how many we know! Yowsa! Looks like we are going to be the next batch of great print makers, perhaps we should start a little collective? A group of seven of our own (or maybe a group with a more imaginative title…) I know how much you love collaborations……….

    That is SO amazing! I would love to participate in something like that, sometime. I’d say you’re lucky, but really you’re tenacious & hard working-great job!
