Einstein Quote Finished!

I finally finished this challenging print! The block is 30 inches long and I printed it on light blue Magnani Prescia, a lovely heavy printmaking paper. Carving all the letters was tedious, but I enjoy carving text so it wasn't bad. The friend who commissioned me to create this piece is very happy!

Below are some photos taken while printing the quote. My husband and I have been watching Genius, the TV series about Albert Einstein while I finished carving the block. It's interesting to work on the quote while watching a show about his life. It really makes history come alive!
