This ornate, limited edition engraved print was commissioned by Neenah as part of its Beauty of Engraving series. The poster was designed by recent New Visual Artist honoree Kevin Cantrell and engraved by Gottschall Engraving. Cantrell says of the project: “When I begin any project, I always look for an excuse to engrave and begin with that vision in site. On a printed piece, if you’re going to sell any vision to the client, sell them the vision of engraving: a vision of perpetuity.” Between the extensive etching and gold foil stamping, it’s not difficult to see why Cantrell was tapped to curate a deeper look into Victorian printing.
