Wood Engraving
Dale DeArmond
Unknown Edition

Paper type: Archival quality
Image size: 4″ x 5″

Note: In 1982, Margaret Calvin – a proprietor of Old Harbor Books, located in Sitka, Alaska – purchased a vintage 1895 Chandler & Price 10 x 15 Platen Letterpress. Afterwards, DeArmond created newly-produced wood engraving illustrations to embellish a long-awaited second edition of Sitka: A Short History, a book first published in 1936 and originally written by Margaret’s husband Jack Calvin. It was the first book to be published by Old Harbor Press.

The image also appeared on the inner title page of both volumes of Feast of the Animals.
