Description

This limited edition poster features the right profile of President Abraham Lincoln done with a collage of postage stamps. The word "Lincoln" is above the profile in tan colored ink. The background for the profile is a mottled dark green which appears to be made from torn pieces of paper. Some of the stamps used in the collage were torn to make the edge of the profile. The main image has a scalloped tan border on a black background to look like the edges of a postage stamp. Inscribed in black ink by the artist under Lincoln's chin, "Honest Abe by L. Grode, 4/16/84." In the lower corner to the viewer's left is the number of the print, 105/1000. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
