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

The Federalist Papers were an inspiration for the birth of the United States of America. One can help distill the magnitude of the book\'s contents by showing its great influence. A script typeface is incorporated in the title to show original handwritten format. The illustration style used on the portraits is a loose stylistic adaptation to the pen inked portraits of Hamilton, Madison, and Jay. In the background, Capitol Hill sits behind the authors to show that their ideas are the firm roots that sprouted the framework of the country. The 13 stars and alternating red/white stripes symbolize the arrival of new states and the dawn of a larger, more influential country. — Zelda Vidal
