This lithograph was completed at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. It is a 5-color lithograph, hand drawn and printed by Faye Passow. The black run was drawn first using razor blades to achieve tone by scraping away a thin layer of ink from a fully inked litho stone. The stone has a fine texture and the scraping removes ink and particles of stone to reveal the light areas. This image is then printed on mylar and becomes the template for the color runs which are also drawn on a litho stone. Each of the colors is drawn separately and printed separately. The black image is printed last. Hand lithographs are multiple originals. This lithograph has a limited edition of 26 with 2 Artist’s Proofs. Each one is an original.
