Great Lakes Hydrography Blueprints: Hand-Printed Cyanotype Posters
$85.00 - $340.00

Printed using the cyanotype process on 46gsm Awagami kozo.

Each poster in the five-part series depicts major streams draining into one of the Great Lakes. You can see more photos by clicking here.

These posters are hand-printed using sunlight, and the process turns out a little different each time, so you can expect some variations from the photos. There are occasional dark spots in the unbleached paper; there may be small wrinkles; the color may be a little lighter or darker. The labels may blur some as in the photos (but not unduly). These are part of the unique, individual character of each print that people seem to like. Sizes may vary by a few millimeters, as the paper shrinks upon drying. These are handmade art prints, not intended to be perfect, uniform products.

Delivery may take some time, and your patience is appreciated! Each print is a bit time-consuming to make, and can only be done in the right weather conditions (though I sometimes have prints on hand that I can ship immediately) I will contact you if I anticipate significant delays. Please email me at [email protected] with any questions.

Shipping outside of the United States may take several weeks, particularly due to disruptions in global trade. More expedited shipping is available for an extra fee; please email me if you are interested. Cost will vary by country but is typically in the range of $40 to $60.
