This print was inspired by a 2015 visit to the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. Upon returning, I set out to create a print using Alpha-blox modular metal type, which in a way mimics the tiles used by the Moors. Over a few days in July 2015 I composed this print and then let it sit on a galley until September 2016. When I returned to it, I only altered the blue center designs. I chose gold ink because of the palatial nature of Alhambra, and the blue ink evokes the power of water that courses through the Alhambra’s many fountains.
