Talk about a craftsman. Kevin cares about every detail and it shows. I wonder how long it takes him to design one of these posters. If you think these look cool on screen, you NEED to see one in person. Kevin sent me two of them and they are straight up beautiful. Like I always say, a foil is never a bad choice. You can see pick one up right here. These are a piece of American history. You’ll see these in text books and museums one day.

Here are the deets in his words:

TERRA, 3/7 IN THE 7 DAYS SERIES, IS INSPIRED BY MAP INSURANCE LETTERING. THE TEXT IS TAKEN FROM THE FIRST FEW VERSES IN GENESIS ON THE CREATION, SUGGESTING THE INFINITE POSSIBILITIES TO CREATE USING NEENAH PAPER. THE BORDER SPELLS OUT “LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH,” WITH THE BORDERS REPRESENTING THE SEASONS OF THE YEAR. TOP LEFT TO RIGHT REPRESENTS WINTER TO SPRING, AS YOU SEE THE TYPE BEGIN TO BLOSSOM. BOTTOM LEFT TO RIGHT REPRESENTS SUMMER TO FALL, WITH FRUITS BURGEONING ON THE LEFT AND THEN FOLIAGE WILTING AS YOU MOVE TO THE RIGHT. THE NEGATIVE SPACE AROUND “TERRA” CREATES A SUBTLE CIRCLE, ANOTHER NOD TO THE CONCEPT OF EARTH. TERRA IS PRINTED IN 14 VERSIONS, INCLUDING A LASER ETCHING ON 1/2″ THICK CHERRYWOOD. ALL POSTERS ARE 16″ X 20.””
