All of our images are available as prints. We offer 4 basic products: Cennini Prints, Tabula Prints, Stretcher Mounted Prints and Note Cards.
(We’re still updating the site so not everything is available.)
Cennino d’Andrea Cennini was a 14th –15th century painter who published the book Il Libro dell’arte, a how-to book for aspiring artists. Among the subjects he covers is one on how to prepare wood for accepting canvas on which the image will appear. Even though my materials are far advanced, I name my wood mounting process after him.
My signature on your printed image says that this work has been printed by me, or under my direction, on specially prepared canvas using the Glicée printing process with archival inks.
I then layer the canvas onto Baltic Birch Plywood, known for its dimensional stability and use in fine cabinet making. The wood is treated to keep the canvas acid-free. The image is then coated with 3 layers of an ultraviolet light and moisture inhibiting sealer. The edge of the board is then painted to complement the image. The Cennini mounted print comes ready to hang. Since each print is individually created and mounted, no two prints will be exactly alike. There is no need for a frame.
With proper care, this print will be handed down to many generations. Follow directions for hanging art and avoid moisture and strong sunlight. You may clean the surface with a soft cloth.
A tabula in Latin can mean a tablet or a board. When meant as a tablet it generally refers to an ancient board that was covered with wax to be used for writing.
Our tabula is not covered with wax. It is covered with one of our canvas, Glicée printed images. The canvas is layered onto Masonite that has been treated to keep acidity from the print. This helps to assure the print has a long life. Your print is then ready for you to have it framed at your favorite shop. By mounting it on the Masonite, your print will remain stable in the frame. This is especially true for large prints.
Stretcher Mounted Prints
Your canvas print is wrapped around stretcher bars. The edges are chosen to be complimentary to the image. These prints may be framed or hung on a wall as it is presented. The hanging supplies are included.
You may order a custom printed note card of an image. Your card is printed on acid-free, 100% cotton paper and includes a matching envelope. They are printed with archival inks using the Gicleé printing process.
Each card is individually printed and signed when you order it and is suitable for framing.
Cards measure 7 3/8 x 5 ½ when folded and are delivered in a Crystal Clear Bag® for protection.
