french paper

The Seven Years’ War, a global conflict known in America as the French and Indian War, ended on February 10, 1863, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris by France, Great Britain, and Spain.

Thomas S. Grimke Autograph Collection, autograph of Edward Braddock, Commander of the British Army, April 17, 1755.

“Signature of Edward Braddock (1695-1755), British commander of troops in North American, who lost his life in the French and Indian war, pasted on a sheet of biographical information.”

Manuscript from the Grimke family papers, 1678-1977, held by the College of Charleston Libraries.

Super excited to be releasing these limited edition prints next month, inspired by the magic of California’s Mount Shasta. They are screen printed in two colors (black and metallic gold) on super nice heavyweight french paper. The prints measure a whopping 18 x 20 inches, perfect size for framing. Each print comes individually signed and numbered. I’m offering my Instagram followers first chance at em, so if you would like to reserve one (or more) just head to:

Cost will be $40 plus shipping. No payments accepted now, only when ready to ship in March. Reservations only available through February 15th. Artwork and photo © 2016 Lisa Orth. (by lisaorth via kooltattoos)

“If my great-great-grandfather J.W. French were alive today he would be shocked to learn that the manufacturing of tangible American products has become a rare and vanishing commodity. Although we see technology and communication evolving, paper is still a vital part of the mix. Unfortunately in America, an increasing percentage of the paper used is generic, shiny, clay-coated stock produced by manufacturers overseas.

"When you choose to use French Paper for print projects that might otherwise run on foreign sheets, you will help ensure that our wide variety of unique American-made papers will continue into the future.”

— Jerry French, in an e-mail to “Friends of French Paper
