I created the Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité art piece to show support for France after the Nov. 13, 2015 terror attacks which happened just before the time of my Earth Crisis installation at the Eiffel Tower. The piece was very important to me as a symbol of unity during a dark, tragic moment. I was moved that the art and the message was inspiring for so many people in France, and beyond, and it has remained one of my most requested images since it was first created. I’m excited to be releasing it now as a fine art, large-format letterpress print. The print is the largest letterpress I’ve made, printed by Aardvark Letterpress using the largest impression area available for this type of printing in Los Angeles. The print features red and blue screen-print with a black and blind deboss (inkless impression) letterpress. The prints also feature a hand torn deckled edge. I’m very pleased with the enhanced elegance these techniques lend to this print. – Shepard
