The great divide. Two opposing factions with conflicting values. Each convinced it is right. Both rigid, unyielding.
Of course, we're talking about discriminating individuals who have a passionate preference for either pie or cake.
These limited-edition letterpress prints celebrate these two proud communities taking their passion to the streets. And as a bonus, you will also receive a third, smaller print depicting the less numerous group that has a passion for veggies. Edition of 300 sets. Signed, numbered, and dated by the artist, Don Moyer. Each print includes a colorful Certificate of Authenticity.
This set includes three prints on heavy sheets of Crane’s Lettra white—an acid-free, 100 percent cotton, 300 gsm sheet. All the images are lovingly bumped into the paper’s surface in rich black ink by master printer, Bryce Knudson of Bjørn Press in the U.S. The pie and cake images are delivered in 11" x 14" bevel-cut mats—ready for framing. The broccoli image is smaller and will arrive in an 8" x 10" bevel-cut mat.
I had these framed and put them on the wall by the kitchen table. A few months later, I was sharing some leftover birthday cake (a butterscotch bourbon layer cake my wife made, easily in the top ten of best things I’ve ever eaten). My buddy was also extolling the goodness of the cake, and said how generally he does not care for cake and is more about pie. I said something about his preference for pie advocacy and gestured at the prints on the wall behind him that he had not yet noticed. He turned around and it took a second for it to register, and it was pretty funny when it did. Like, that art was made to underscore a discussion about the virtues of pie vs cake, and nobody expects that to just be hanging on the wall behind them. That moment alone was worth having the prints on the wall, but I enjoy seeing them every other time I go by them. Even the lonely broccoli monster.
