1canoe2 letterpress is the stuff dreams are made of - Carrie and Beth are childhood friends who always loved to draw. Now the two are all grown-up and work together as professional illustrators, designers and printers. The name 1canoe2 comes from years of the two dreaming up big ideas around a campfire and floating down a spring-fed Missouri river in a canoe. One canoe, two girls. Carrie and Beth were just beginning their journey as a letterpress company when they asked Carrie’s sister-in-law Karen to join the team. Now three women strong, 1canoe2 is chasing bigger dreams and creating letterpress art that makes people happy.
The Long and the Short of It
You needn't necessarily be a connoisseur of elongated objects to, ahem, long for this charming letterpress-printed celebration of all things boasting considerable length, not girth. In this limited edition framed print, childhood BFFs-turned-illustrating-partners-in-crime Carrie Shryock and Beth Snyder share a few of their favorite outstretched objects such as a ruler, a whale, a feather, a suspension bridge, and one mighty impressive wiener dog. They've also been sure to include a canoe, the watercraft responsible for much of the design duo's artistic inspiration.
The second in the "Things That are..." series alongside the equally charming Things That Are Round print.
Hand-drawn and hand-letterpressed in Columbia, Missouri. Numbered and signed by the artists.
Made in the USA
Available framed only.
