Art Print Series #4
"The Idealization of Asymmetrical Thought" by Tara McPherson is the first print of 2007 for the Decoder Ring Fine Art Print Series. The print ended up at 18 layers including two layers of varnish, two split fountains and silver and light gold metallics. The way Tara illustrated the image combined with the printing techniques makes the wallpaper look like actual velvet. It's an amazing print.
