No. Cascade Suite, 2014

To make these individual monoprints, metal type was handset, letterpress printed, then drawn over with brush and watercolor ink so each piece is unique.The metal type is called OCR-A, the first typeface cast by American TypeFounders Company in 1968 for machine optical character recognition. All six monoprints form a suite that shows a mountain range undergoing transformations, an intertwining of nature and man-made elements. The "No." in the title refers both to the North Cascade Mountains and the numbers in the typeface. 11 inches tall x 15 inches wide each, on archival printmaking paper.
