Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas is a marvelous place; it is co-owned by longtime friends Mark Smith and Katherine Brimberry.
Here is one print I’ve acquired over the years from Flatbed, a scissor-tailed flycatcher woodcut by David Everett. Flatbed is a fine art press that can also produce extraordinarily large prints and is a full-service shop (I own one print that is six feet long, in fact). There is also space set aside for exhibitions, which are ongoing throughout each year. I urge everyone to stop by and have a look when next in Austin.
As an aside, I hope once the economy improves to embark upon the Texas Butterfly Print Project, and overview of which can be studied here:
Proceeds from the fine art print set will support the National Butterfly Center in Mission, Texas (naba.org), which is one of the most intense areas for butterflies in the world. Mark and I developed the concept originally (it has been very well planned), and once we secure funding, we are ready to go!
