by Hazel


For the entire month of December, all Hazel & Wren letterpress prints are 30% off — that’s $14 each (normally $20)! 

Here’s the link to Shop ‘Til You Drop!

Ship unmatted and unframed.
Limited Edition letterpress prints.*
Each print numbered and signed by Hazel & Wren along bottom of the print.

These prints are hand-pulled letterpress prints, and were printed from old wood type. This means there are some slight, natural variations in coloring from print to print, as well as some visible grain from the wood type.

Printed on Revere Suede Polar White 300gsm, a naturally acid- and chlorine-free paper. Ink used is a mixture of Daniel Smith Lithographic and Relief inks.



*Which means when these are gone, they’re gone forever! No reprints.

Thanks to all who came to Incident: A Reading at Rosalux Gallery!



The evening was full of good vibes, fantastic readers, mesmerizing art, and a ridiculously fun collaborative poem. The first version below is the original, and the second version is backwards, for fun. We like it both ways, actually!



A huge thanks to Rebecca Krinke and Duane Ditty for inviting us into their exhibition for this reading, and to our beloved readers: Opal C. McCarthy, Timothy Otte, and Brett Elizabeth Jenkins. Thanks also to Jessica Mayer for the photos below, and to all Hazel & Wren staff for being amazing, as usual.
