The Liberty Series
An ongoing series of unique Liberty prints
from hand-carved woodcuts, hand-printed with water-based pigments
with sonnet text by Emma Lazarus
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
—Emma Lazarus, 1883
