Taku (1972)

AKA Little Bird and Sun 


Dale DeArmond 

Edition of 28

Unknown proofs were produced 

Image size: 7 ½" x 9 ⅓" 

Note: unlike most illustrations from Juneau: A Book of Woodcuts, it was not offered for purchase – most likely because, in this case, it had already been previously editioned. 

This print was created from one woodblock. DeArmond would ink both images at the same time – using different colors – then pull the print. This is unlike how she traditionally would create multi-colored prints, which would typically use a separate block for each color. 

Also pictured: the original carved woodblock.
