Auction Item--Framed Quote from Colette of Raw Art Letter Press!

Colette's shop,  Raw Art Letter Press is full of "original prints and posters specializing in typography and quotes".  In Colette's own words:  "I live in Mt. Shasta, California, USA I am a self-taught maker of all sorts of things. 
I made up the 'raw art letterpress' process in February of 2009 and started an Etsy shop a few months later. I hand cut all of my plates & every letter with love from recycled materials like bingo cards, playing cards and boxes. If you like the perfection of imperfection, you are in the right place.  I have just started making giclee (archival reproductions) of my original prints as well as original illustrations."

Colette's contribution to our Light the Night auction is this matted quote from Christopher Robin (quite appropriate!) with her own original finale.  (Please note the frame is not included.)

Giclee Print of my original Raw Art Letterpress You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think (and loved more than you know) Christopher Robin from Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne (the last line is my original addition)

This print is an archival reproduction of my original piece - it is printed on super-matte archival paper with an Epson 3880 professional printer using UltraChrome K3™ technology inks. it is rated to last at least a few lifetimes. The first image is a scanned and cropped detail of the giclee print. 

The inky area of this print is 9x7 and will fit into a frame with an 8x10 mat opening. You will get a signed print. All prints are sold unframed.

Bidding is now open for this matted print!
