Specimen is a very limited intaglio edition of 16 total prints and 1 artist proof.
The first printed edition sold out quickly in early 2018 so I decided to return to this image one last time to create a special version of this copperplate, one that accentuated the significance of this image in my oeuvre while showcasing the line-work and detail of the work. For this reason, I used the Chin-Colle' process—printing on highly receptive handmade Japanese Gampi paper backed by a warm, subtly textured Sommerset rag paper. As this will be the last time I print this plate, I am offering it for an extremely reduced price directly through my website as a thank you to all the individuals that have supported my work over the years. The subtle line work, chine-collé details, and my signature Buck chop on the lower right side of the paper showcase the attention to detail I put into this print. Every image is signed, dated, and numbered by the artist. The plate impression measures 4"x6" and the paper measures 12" x 15". The print will be shipped flat using archival materials and protected by a cardboard support for shipping. Please allow 7-10 business days for hand packaging and shipment of prints.
