This new letterpress print by Lynn of Satsuma Press is such a lovely tribute to her late father-in-law, who was a woodcarver and sculptor. In her own words:
Glen Russell was my father-in-law. He was a woodcarver and sculptor, but he also drew beautifully. Last year, Glen and I had discussed and agreed to a small edition letterpress run of this sketch he did of his son – my husband – Ben. Glen passed away in July 2010 at his home on Whidbey Island. This fall, I printed this piece in memory and celebration of Glen's life and art. There are 65 editions as he would have turned 65 in August. As was Glen's intent, the proceeds from this print will go toward a fund of his six year old grandson, Liam Russell, who was born with a neuromuscular disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It is an honor and a pleasure to be able to share Glen's work with others. (Lynn, Satsuma Press)
The limited edition print is available at Satsuma Press.
