"Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life." - Omar Khayyam

This illustration depicts two warring ideas in the Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam - the brevity of time and the sweetness of life. Sand runs inexorably through an hourglass, and its silhouette forms a glass of wine. Drink up, before it's gone.

Each of our letterpress prints are hand pulled on Crane’s lush100% Cotton Lettra paper by our Albany, NY partners at Boxcar press. 

The letterpress technique produces beautiful, tactile prints. Our printer makes a custom plate based on our artwork, applies the ink, and presses paper into it to which creates a beautiful deep impression. The result is a tactile, one-of-a-kind print that uses the inks and relief to create gorgeous textures and shadow.
