Cthulandia woodcut print

$50.00
2nd Edition, limited to 50 prints on 10 x 8" paper, using an 8 x 6" block.

Cthulandia was hand-carved in wood and printed on an etching press with archival oil based-black ink on hand-torn cream Rives BFK paper. (Please note: due to the nature of tearing paper, dimensions may vary slightly.) Each print is titled, signed, numbered, and accompanied by edition information. Cthulhu's pose and trident are based upon the iconic Raymond Kaskey Portlandia statue which may be seen on the Portland Building in Portland, Oregon. The first edition was made available only to a select few backers of the Portland H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon Kickstarter, and was hand-colored by the artist. This second limited edition is the first edition offered for sale to the public.

Liv Rainey-Smith is an artist specializing in hand-pulled xylographic prints. Her imagery draws primarily upon historic styles, folklore, dreams, esotericism, and of course the works of H.P. Lovecraft and his followers. Rainey-Smith's woodcut process incorporates a mixture of traditional and modern tools as well as a blend of European and Japanese printmaking technique. She prints in small editions on both paper and animal parchment. Her work may also be found on the pages of Robert Fitzgerald's Arcanum Bestiarum from Three Hands Press, and the upcoming Starry Wisdom Library anthology from PS Publishing, edited by Nate Pedersen.
