Dan Hocker of Hocker Wood Works has created a special Wooden Relief Carving for fans of Revival by Stephen King, which we're thrilled to be offering through the LetterPress Publications online store.
To create something like this, Dan carves out the main shape from a custom-cut piece of Cherry wood; the entire piece is hand painted; and then the top layer of wood is sanded off to remove the paint on the flat surfaces while leaving the color in the carved sections. Finally, a protective layer is applied to protect the finish and the paint for years to come.
For those who regularly purchase items that are made by hand, you know the other special element of these: every piece of wood is slightly different, and creating a wood carving like this means there will be small variations, so each and every one is its own, unique piece of artwork.
Each of these will be approximately 6 inches by 9 inches, so it won't be hard to find the perfect place on your bookshelf, wall, or display case.
Dan is preparing to set aside time for a very limited run of these just for LetterPress Publications collectors. The cost is $100 plus shipping, which really is a tremendous deal when you consider how much labor goes into these.
There won't be many made due to the time involved in the process, so please place your order ASAP!
PLEASE NOTE: This item is a preorder, which we expect to ship in August. That timeframe might change a little due to Dan's workload and the nature of making these pieces one at a time. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you!
