Amanda Wachob Hand Embellished Letterpress Poem
Watercolor on letterpress on rag paper. 8" x 10". Edition of 50.
Based on tattoo artist, Amanda Wachob's February residence in the Whitney Shop, this letterpress print depicts every piece of the love poem she tattooed on thirty individuals. This limited edition print is hand embellished and signed by the artist.

Inspired by the artists Njideka Akunyili Crosby (b. 1983) and Byron Kim (b. 1961), whose work was included in Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection, Wachob conceived of this poem using designs found in the archives of the New England Confectionery Company and text decontextualized from historic expressions used on their iconic Sweetheart candies.

Edition of 50. Please note that each piece is unique and may vary from the photo.
