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

\"Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?\" \"Because it\'s there.\" -George Mallory When I took this photograph after the arduous hike up the Falling Waters trail in Franconia Notch two years ago, it never occurred to me how well it captured the essence of breathing in that mountain air while looking out at the rolling hills beyond. I have always had a love of nature, but became a true hiking aficionado several years ago. Once you get bitten by the hiking bug, there\'s no turning back. For this project, I paired my two passions, graphic design and nature, into one composition. The typography helps to establish the vastness of the sky, giving the viewer a feeling of longing to scale the mountains that lie ahead. So, happy hiking to all! — Laura Collins
