Extraordinary wood-cut print shots for Paul Roden and Valerie Leuth’s Moon

Now you know that we’re basically all about finished pieces here at It’s Nice That but we thought we’d make an exception for these stunning process shots. Valerie Leuth and Paul Roden have collaborated on an amazingly detailed woodcut print which will be released in the new year and these photos show the painstaking work that’s gone into it. This fantastical reimagining of the moon taps into the symbolism and mythology with which we associate our extraterrestrial neighbour, mixing real landmarks with illustrative licence to create something very special. The pair have worked together before (on this maritime print series for example) but at 32 by 36 inches this task their talents to a whole new level.
