Oh, the Wind and Rain is a suite of ten wood engravings by Isak Applin. The images were conceived during the early months of the pandemic, when the artist’s Queens home and studio were surrounded by the constant wail of ambulances heading to Elmhurst Hospital. The prints record the trauma of the moment and vividly recollect a world that suddenly vanished.

Oh, the Wind and Rain is the first Titan and Weald book printed on the iron hand press. The suite will be bound in book and portfolio form, with several sets of loose prints available.

6/5/22 update: most of the sheets for portfolios and loose prints have been printed. The portfolios are still being compiled and bound, check for updates about this real soon. The book version is on the press and copies should be ready towards by the end of the year.

Edition: 22 books, 8 portfolios, 5 sets of loose prints
Press: 1850s Albion hand press, and an etching press for the cover image
