Grapheme Colorwheel Print Project


I believe none of us is alone in our experience–and that we each have wisdom the other needs or can use. I believe we create in order to give shape to our experiences–and that the process of articulating them helps us to understand them. These limited edition letterpress prints are born of these beliefs.

Handset type on a curve with polymer design elements. Each print is at least four color runs.

Quotes collected via online submission and curated as a set; these are the first six prints in a longer series (to come).

Each print is signed and editioned at the bottom; 6″ x 8″ (standard frame size) but can be trimmed to 6″ x 6″ to fit a square frame. Printed on Rives BFK cotton rag paper (grey).

Ships next business day.

The tiny quotes read:

“A story matrix connects all of us. There are rules, processes, and circles of responsibility in this world. And the story begins exactly where it is supposed to begin. We cannot skip any part.” –Joy Harjo

“So few grains of happiness measured against all the dark and still the scales balance. The world asks of us only the strength we have and we give it. Then it asks more, and we give it.” –Jane Hirshfield

“The thing worth doing well done has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident. The pitcher cries for water to carry and a person for work that is real.” –Marge Piercy

“Inspiration is not the exclusive privilege of poets or artists. . . . There will always be a certain group of people whom inspiration visits. It’s made up of those who’ve consciously chosen their calling and do their job with love and imagination.” –Wislawa Szymborska

“I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe you have the strength to bear it.” –Tennessee Williams

“This is the first, the wildest and wisest thing I know: that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness.” –Mary Oliver
