'Carbon Paper' 2006
24x34". 5 layers for this print.
My 12-year-old son doesn’t know what carbon paper is. Which just goes to show how much has changed in a relatively short time. Carbon paper is thin paper coated with a mixture of wax and pigment used between two sheets of ordinary paper to make one or more copies of an original document. You could find it in office typewriters everywhere well into the second half of 20th century. Despite its ultimate fate, carbon paper has made its mark on modern technology: That little "cc" you click to add recipients of your email message stands for carbon copy.
This authentic piece of carbon paper is over 40 years old and well-used. And now, carbon paper is obsolete. Dead, like wilted flowers, unless of course, you’re very creative.
Paper size, 24”x34” (size can be larger with special printing). Limited edition of 30 prints on heavy watercolor paper. Hand signed, named, numbered and dated.
