Ragpicker Press: "Tracy Honn of Ragpicker Press and Diane Fine of the Moonkosh Press have been working collaboratively since 1987. Using a variety of print media, they have published four artist books and two ongoing series of letterpress print works: a set of broadsides and a large group of postcard size prints. Fine and Honn have evolved a collaborative model that is a blended identity. Decisions are made mutually and both artists participate fully in all aspects of the work's production, from conception to editioning to distribution. Their collaborative body of work is independent of each artist's individual artistic efforts, though it is related to and, at times, informs their individual artmaking. The artists have said, 'Our work is about healing, and humor and looking at truths'."
Moonkosh Press: "Part of an ongoing series of postcards published by the Moonkosh Press, Diane Fine, Prop., and Ragpicker Press, Tracy Honn, Prop. The first cards were printed in 1989. Fine and Honn share a love of printed ephemera and joining found images with found text and vice versa."
Each set may be slightly different. Each postcard is numbered with the edition. The edition of each postcard varies thus each card is numbered with the edition delineated.
