Collagraph purchase award for Free Library of Philadelphia

This piece was purchased for the permenent collection by The Philadelphia Center for the Book.  I am really honored, and it is a first for me in a permenent public collection.  It was one of the pieces I had at Book, Paper, Scissors event held each November at the library.  The Print and Picture collection is on the second floor of the Free Library of Philadelphia.
Above is the plate used to make the Peaches collograph as well as 6 others that are similar.
The plates from this type of print making often become works of art in their own right and become more beautiful the more the are used.
