Happy New Year! Let's talk about wood prints. They're one of my latest obsessions, and I ordered three for gifts this year. Since the photo is printed directly onto the wood, the texture and tint from the grain produce a vintage effect.
It was Jeff's idea to transform the Matterhorn image above into a wood print as a wedding gift for a dear friend I studied with in Switzerland way back in the 90s.
