Letterpress Print- The Seven Ages of Mandelion- Artist Proof Editions


Shipping to United States: $5.34

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely flowers..."

A beautiful and unique letterpress print from my own original artwork, specially printed in a limited edition run of 250 on a vintage Heidelberg press, giving a wonderful debossed look and feel (see the close up pictures to get an idea of the texture). Printed in lush black ink on white 100% cotton 300gsm Somerset paper, A4 size (210 x 297 mm, 8.3 x 11.7 inches). The 250 numbered editions have sold out but I have a handful of Artist Proof editions for sale. Each print is signed in pencil to the bottom right-hand corner.

Inspired by Shakespeare's "seven ages of man" speech from As You Like It, and my enduring love for the much-maligned dandelion, this little vintage-style pen-and-ink illustration shows the passing of time through the figure of a dandelion-headed Edwardian English gent, from tiny seed through to an old head blowing into the wind, starting the cycle all over again.

Will be sealed in a cellophane sleeve and shipped in a rigid board-backed envelope for protection.

A copy of this artwork forms part of a permanent collection of art installed at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon (look out for it if you visit!).

The print that I've purchased has quickly become one of my favourite possessions. It's just a really nice piece of art from the unique illustrations to the texture of the paper its all just perfect. I had a little worry about the delivery but was quickly put to ease after asking Jon about it, as per last time the delivery felt very special with the inclusion of a postcard that had an illustration that differed from last time.

Soooo thrilled to get this :) It’s brilliant! Crisp print, promptly shipped, seller is so nice :) Definitely will be back!

I was thrilled to see this listed because it hadn't been available when I'd looked for it before. Extremely high quality, speedily despatched, well packaged, and beautiful artwork. You can't get better service than this. Repeat customer looking forward to my next purchase soon! Thank you :)

So fabulous! Thank you!

Love this print! It adds a nice finishing touch in my dressing room. I will definitely order from Jon Turner again.
