This large letterpress print features an excerpt from my all-time favorite poem “Desiderata” by Max Ehrman, hand-drawn in a funky folk-art style of Macon York. Phases of the moon and hand-drawn ferns and plants provide a circular border around the text.

"Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here."

The print has a lovely tactile texture from the letterpress impression on cotton paper.

It is suitable for framing and makes great wall art. Fits any standard 12"x18" frame.

**This print is not available in other sizes**

This unique letterpress art print was printed by hand with love using an antique Vandercook #4 Letterpress Machine.

Macon works out of her homestead studio in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
