The Founders’ Portfolio
The Northwest Print Council is a nonprofit organization of professional printmakers, dedicated to promoting the artistry and appreciation of original prints. Founded in 1981, the Northwest Print Council includes the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.
This portfolio of original prints is a project executed by the founding members of the Northwest Print Council, or by the estates of founding members who are deceased, as noted on the dedication page.
The typesetting and printing of the Title, Colophon, and Dedication pages were executed by Linda and Daniel Pinkham at Pinkham Press. The portfolio design and construction were by Sandy Tilcock at Lone Goose Press. Production coordinators for the Founder’ Portfolio were Lyle Matoush and Barbara Davis.
Of an edition of fifty, this is print portfolio number 32.
