To Be Quiet | Original
'To Be Quiet' is an original work by Indiana-based artist Alexander Landerman combining letterpress elements with ink and ink-wash illustrations. He uses a combination of specially developed and traditional techniques to allow the letterpress to weave in and out through the illustrative elements.
Alexander's heart-tugging works capture the quiet beauty of a vast array of animals that may be devoid of life but are nonetheless still worthy of acknowledgement and appreciation.
