This is the 2nd edition of this print. The type is slightly different and the colors are a bit different too. It's on the same French Paper cement green stock.
These words paraphrase John, Viscount Morley, from his treatise On Compromise in 1857. I know the words thanks to a Ben Shahn poster that hung in my grandma's living room when I was a kid.
This is a letterpress print, typeset by hand with vintage wood type and printed by the artist on a Challenge proofing press at the Mancos Common Press in Mancos, Colorado, on tribal lands taken from the Southern Ute people.
This same statement in a different design is available as a mini-print as well.
Edition of 20 signed, hand-numbered copies.
12 x 19 in. Shipped flat.
