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

In this image I tried to imagine a picture of Dorothea Brooke ala a young George Eliot, as the book is partially autobiographical. In the Dorothea\'s countenance I wished to portray an awkwardness of middle youth which buries itself in life, love, and intellectual pursuits, while remaining uneasy, or puzzled, by the world itself. — Andrew Fairweather
