Neil Peck - Graven Image Art

Neil Peck is an artist in Olympia, WA and creates limited edition prints made from a hand-engraved wood block on Zerkall Book White paper, which is acid free, of archival quality that will not discolor or fade. 

How does Neil do it? He's happy to tell you:

"My engravings start from a composite of photograph and drawing that is transferred onto a polished block of Lemon wood. Then I engrave with very fine cuts to remove the white lines and areas of the image. Once the image is complete on the block, I roll it with oil based black ink and place a sheet of fine printmaking paper that has been slightly dampened over the top of the block. The block and paper together are cranked through my 100 year old press and the pressure forces the ink deep into the dampened paper. The result is a beautiful letterpress print."

All materials used are acid free and of museum quality to ensure that this print will last for a lifetime of enjoyment. The print comes in an acid free protective bag.
