KY Natural Wonders Prints: Land Between The Lakes Edition

by Kentucky For Kentucky |

This Friday, February 17th at 10 a.m. we are launching the 4th print to the KY Natural Wonders prints series, y’all! These new Land Between the Lakes prints are designed by Nick Baute of Hound Dog Press and hand-printed the old fashioned way!

Located in western Tennessee and Kentucky, Land Between the Lakes is the largest inland peninsula in the U.S.A. Originally created when the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers were impounded (creating Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley), LBL has over 170,000 acres of gorgeous forested & protected public land, and over 300 miles of undeveloped shoreline. Maintained and managed by the USDA Forest Service, this gorgeous location welcomes over 2 million visitors a year!

Each 13” x 18” print is hand carved onto linoleum blocks, then reduced (or cut) in-between each individual color. They’re printed one color at a time, one print at a time, on a 1950 Vandercook #4 printing press using 100# French Paper Co. paper (100% recycled in a hydro powered mill). The process insures that no additional prints can be made. Once these are gone, they’re truly gone, so grab yours while they last!
