Sanguine Moon – It’s arrived…

Our new print has finally arrived. Titled Sanguine Moon by American artist Margaret Barnaby, it’s a wood block print of two Alala (Hawaiian crows) perched on a loulu palm under a blood red October moon. Margaret’s work is truly stunning – much of it concerned with Alala and some of Hawaii’s many other endangered animals and plants. You can see more of it at her website.

Margaret was good enough to let me use this and a few of her other images in my recently delivered Sir Keith Hancock Lecture at the 44th Symposium of the Australian Academy of the Humanities. The lecture was titled “Life at the Edge of Extinction: Spectral crows, Haunted Landscapes and the Environmental Humanities” and the text has now been published in Humanities Australia (vol. 5) and is available online here.

Yesterday I took the print to the framer. We went with a dark blue card around the edge that I think will work really nicely.
