Reading Frenzy! Print by Carson Ellis

By Carson Ellis

archival pigment print on cotton rag paper, 17"x22", signed, edition of 250

We are very pleased to introduce the first work in a series of reading inspired images commissioned by and exclusively sold at Reading Frenzy! Our first artist, Carson Ellis, happens to be one of our all time favorites. Aptly entitled, Reading Frenzy, what makes this image extra special is that Carson and her son Hank are regulars at Reading Frenzy and a number of the books in the piece came from the shop.

Carson Ellis was born in 1975 in Vancouver, Canada. She was raised in suburban New York and attended the University of Montana in Missoula, where she earned a BFA in Painting in 1998. These days she divides her creative efforts between children's book illustration, artwork for the Decemberists, and, once in a great while, fine art for exhibiting. Carson lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband Colin, their son Hank, and their cat Albert.

Expertly printed by Harlan Mahaffy, this generously sized, and affordably priced print is suitable for framing and will last for generations. This 17"x22" edition is limited to 250. Edition disclosure: We will be issuing a limited run of 8"x10" prints that will only be available as a premium through our 500 Friends of Reading Frenzy membership program and will not be offered for sale. We will also be using this image with added text for a book bag.
