    Humor-ous Description: Display a piece of classic literature with its age and character intact. A unique addition to anyone’s den, office, study, foyer, billiard room, or ballroom. Or maybe you want it in the bathroom, and hey, who are we to judge? We could go on and on trying to combine complicated adjectives to motivate you to purchase our product, in fact we wish we could. But we can’t. We're too busy doing things like trying to age paper without it disintegrating in our hands, or getting our fingers stuck in the mechanism of a 71 year-old death-trap of a typewriter. (Wall behind print not included.)

    Humor-less Description: We’ve hand typed Good Timber by Douglas Malloch.  (11 x 14 prints are machine printed using high-quality pigment based inks and are hand-aged.) All our prints use paper we have personally aged through our own multi-staged process. The pictures are taken without glass so you can see the detail, but be assured framed prints will ship with glass installed!

      Poem Text

      "The tree that never had to fight
      For sun and sky and air and light,
      But stood out in the open plain
      And always got its share of rain,
      Never became a forest king
      But lived and died a scrubby thing.

      The man who never had to toil
      To gain and farm his patch of soil,
      Who never had to win his share
      Of sun and sky and light and air,
      Never became a manly man
      But lived and died as he began.

      Good timber does not grow with ease:
      The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
      The further sky, the greater length;
      The more the storm, the more the strength.
      By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
      In trees and men good timbers grow.

      Where thickest lies the forest growth,
      We find the patriarchs of both.
      And they hold counsel with the stars
      Whose broken branches show the scars
      Of many winds and much of strife.
      This is the common law of life."
