Hungry  Beaver • A close up of a beaver dining on a fine sapling in Grand Teton National Park. Busy beavers are once again rebuilding and restoring the riparian areas of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem after a few close encounters with local extinction. Beaver’s thick, soft pelts were the initial draw to the Rocky Mountains for trappers in the early sixteenth and seventeenthcenturies, Beaver furs were highly prized in Europe for centuries, and beaver hats were all the rage  throughout the western world.

By the mid 1800s beavers were on the brink of extinction, and their salvation, and eventual recovery hinged on the whims of fashion: Free market dynamics made the diminishing supply of beaver pelts too expensive, so fashion designers found a substitute buyers could better afford. In the 1840s, silk top hats replaced the beaver-felt hat as the must-have head wear.

Product information

Traditional Fine Art Prints • I have all fine art prints printed at Bay Photo, an internationally known custom color lab.  After printing, Bay Photo ships the print to me for inspection and signing, I then ship them along to you. This takes awhile, be patient.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout. With product names like Entrada, Colorado, and Lasal its easy to see the source of inspiration for Legion Paper's Moab brand. Created in Moab, UT surrounded by the endless red rock wonders of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado River, and the LaSal Mountains, the Moab line of archival, digital imaging papers continues to rely on that inspiration to design premium solutions for digital photographers and artists.

Your paper print product will come pre-mounted on 3/16" Gator Foamboard, a very rigid, durable, and lightweight backing that will not warp, the premium backing for fine art prints. Having messed up prints myself putting them on mountaing board you will appreciate the extra effort and expanese.
