Inspiration Monday: Indian Hill Press

If you have read Yankee Magazine, you've seen the short poems signed "D.A.W." often accompanied by a simple linocut. The poems are wonderful, using 4 lines and a few short words to evoke a season or a moment in life.

Since the identity of D.A.W is kept a mystery in the magazine, I googled to find out more about the poet and the prints. I found the poet is Daniel Alan Waters of Indian Hill Press in West Tisbury, MA and several books of his poems and prints. I also found out that his whimsical prints are linocuts.

Remembering the Islander by Daniel Waters

Some are just plain black and white while others are in 2 or more colors. The simplicity and whimsy of the prints and poems are inspiration to carry to my own work.
