Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

Heidi is the story of a strong, intelligent, cheerful girl who inspires life and vitality to all she encounters. As a young child, I was gifted a copy of Heidi while recovering from a leg injury that left me temporarily immobile. Heidi's determined spirit and her friendship with Clara, who was also learning to walk again, was very formative and has stayed with me ever since. I wanted to capture Heidi and her animal companions against the vast beauty of the Swiss Alps, in a playful style using soft shapes and vibrant natural colors. — Helen Shewolfe Tseng
