TEST RUN FOR THESIS PROJECT WITH NEW MAPLE
The design and labor (voluntary) were outsourced for this sample.
And I am grateful.
The time elapsed between initial design concept to block production, and then to final print production, has been greatly decreased since the beginning of my research in September. I am pleased with this cut of maple. Though it retains its characteristic super-tight grain structure, there are some delightful idiosyncrasies in the ring surfaces. This creates patches of visible and vivid grain texture that mirror the ink coverage patterns on the final print.
