    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 the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling. (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
        "If you can keep your head when all about you   
            Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
        If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
            But make allowance for their doubting too;   
        If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
            Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
        Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
            And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
        If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
            If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
        If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
            And treat those two impostors just the same;   
        If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
            Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
        Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
            And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
        If you can make one heap of all your winnings
            And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
        And lose, and start again at your beginnings
            And never breathe a word about your loss;
        If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
            To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
        And so hold on when there is nothing in you
            Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
        If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
            Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
        If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
            If all men count with you, but none too much;
        If you can fill the unforgiving minute
            With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
        Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
            And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!"
