Beautiful is a portfolio consisting of a suite of five multi-plate etchings printed with Sheila Coppola at Sidereal Press. The variations presented here are one-of-a-kind prints created while developing the portfolio. In this series of etchings Gertrude Stein’s text is repeatedly built-up on the plate through the etching process and printing on the press with and without ink.

Funding to transform the Type/written series to a suite of etchings was made possible with a Special Projects Grant from 4Culture and a City Artist Grant from the Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs.
