Notes: "Where lazy cows once whiled away the Maine days, W.A. Shevis has quartered his Cowstall Press, an 11x13 handpress set up primarily as an extension to his wood and lino printmaking activities. The press mark is an adaptation of an animal drawing made by the Shevis' six-year-old son." © James Lamar Weygand
