Arts & Crafts Press Triptych Block Prints

Click here to view a larger picture Based in the Pacific Northwest, The Arts & Crafts Press was founded in 1996 by Bruce Smith and Yoshiko Yamamoto. We specialize in crafting letterpress printed note cards and limited-edition block prints. We work with the belief that art is not an object, it is a way of life. We strive to create things of beauty by using our head, our heart, and our hands.

The title of this print is "The Golden Gate - Summer Fog"


Why do we all love the San Francisco landmark Golden Gate Bridge? Is it its graceful design of the suspension bridge? Or its famous warm red paint color? Or the astonishing turquoise color of the Golden Gate strait?
 
It's all about the fog. Sometimes it wafts in gently from the Pacific, other times totally engulfing and completely obscuring the view of the bridge. Yes, it makes for chilly summer mornings in San Francisco. But I love the fog in San Francisco.

Especially as artist I’m fascinated by fog. Without the famous fog, the bridge looks naked and sad, losing symmetry. The bridge becomes whole with the fog and I’m totally obsessed by its interplay with the landscape.

This print is letterpress-printed, using fourteen blocks on 100% cotton paper.

Signed and numbered Limited Edition of 220. Framed version by Dard Hunter Studios in Chillicothe, Ohio.
