This Machine Surrounds Hate

This Machine Surrounds Hate


The late, great Pete Seeger has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw him perform with his banjo on Reading Rainbow when I was a kid. In that clip, he played a banjo with the words "This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender" lettered in a circle around the edge -- itself probably inspired by Woody Guthrie's "This Machine Kills Fascists" message. 

Here the words have been set in antique wood type and printed over a hand-carved linoleum block of an anatomical heart. The heart was printed in a subtle gradient from pink to orange to magenta, and the words printed in a beautiful teal blue. 

Size: 11" x 14", easily framed in a read-made frame
