This is the recent issue of Contemporary Impressions with a photopolymer intaglio with relief that I printed in 2007.  Although the cover reproduction is a duotone, a method of printing an image using two colors, usually black and one color, the actual print has a color blend of blues, oranges, and yellows.

Contemporary Impressions is the Journal of the American Print Alliance.  Check it out at

So I found a very copy of this journal sitting on my kitchen table (under a mess of mail) yesterday. I don't know how long it had been sitting there. Mail sent to me is never actually given to me unfortunately. Very nice work, I only wish it was in color.

I'll try to post one in color to illustrate the difference; the whole mood of the image changes. Your copy of Contemporary Impressions was sent from the American print Alliance's Ken's Fund, in honor of Kenneth Kerslake, a well known printmaker who passed away a few years ago. Each APA Board members can nominate a current student for the award and your recent acceptance into the BFA program warranted the nomination. Dr. Carol Pulin, Director of APA, selected the awards for this calendar year. I'm glad you were selected. You'll receive another issue in the spring.
