The panel for Death is based on illustrations from the <i>Ars Moriendi</i>. Death, in the form of a skeleton, is poised to strike a sickly, bedridden man with his arrow. A priest confessor hands the dying man a lit candle, while an angel and a demon wait on the bedposts to make claim on the man&rsquo;s soul. <br><br> In the panel for Judgment, Christ is seated on a rainbow, surrounded by clouds. His feet rest on an orb, and He displays His wounds. A lily and a sword respectively represent the Hand of Mercy and the Hand of Justice. Angels blow trumpets calling the dead to rise from their tombs and come to judgment. <br><br> The panel for Heaven shows the Mystical Lamb standing on an altar and filling a chalice with His blood. Adoring angels sit before Him, holding musical instruments. <br><br> The panel for Hell shows Satan with three damned souls stuffed in his mouth. In a grotesque detail borrowed from an anonymous 15th century French panel painting, he is enthroned on a primitive toilet, and reprobate souls are imprisoned in the pot beneath it. Following a common medieval convention for depicting devils, he has two faces: one on his head and one on his belly. <br><br> The skull, bones and astronomical clock in the middle of the drawing are traditional reminders of the brevity of life and the inevitability of death. <i>Memento Mori</i> is set in Victor, a typeface that I designed myself. <br><br> Medium: Letterpress print, based on an ink drawing <br> Press: Heidelberg cylinder (Rohner Letterpress, Chicago, IL) <br> Ink: 1920 bond black (Graphic Chemical & Ink, Villa Park, IL) <br> Paper: Cotton wove (Reich Savoy) <br> Edges: Cut <br> Edition: Open, approximately 200 <br> Dimensions: 4 1/2" &times; 7 1/4" <br> Year: 2018 <br><br><hr><br> The print costs $12.
