book cover art.

Your Divine Wolf woodcut print.

Hidden since publication in 1992.

You can now own a print of the powerful, iconic illustration, Divine Wolf.

It’s featured on the original cover of the groundbreaking Women Who Run With the Wolves.

Every lock of hair, tuft of fur and element of nature was first carved by hand into a single block of maple.

It is a careful process that takes hours to perform and years to perfect.

The Divine Wolf print is made with a block engraving and a sheet of museum-grade archival paper. Archival paper lasts hundreds of years. It’s made for important legal or historical documents.

The print is produced on an antique Challenge proof press. The block is hand-inked using a brayer and passed through the press. Each print has hand-deckled edges – and a carefully hand-embossed border.

One single radiant energy from emotion.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes knew the symbolic weight of her work better than anybody. I was tapping into this proto-literate primitive look. And she wanted to have it look more literate. I was experimenting with a lot of women who were petroglyphs. Representations of a woman running with wolves. That’s where I started. But, the author was having a lot of input. And I thought it pretty decent input.

I wanted to keep the energy in there – like the radiating lines. But, it had to occupy less visual space. I didn’t know it, but behind the scenes, they were planning it to be smaller. I thought it would be across the whole book cover. They were planning on it occupying one single block. You’ve seen the cover. It’s pretty minimal coverage.

It wasn’t how I envisioned placement. I never saw the envisioned layout for the book cover. That hampered me a little bit. I get why they wanted to compress
everything into one woman, one wolf – one single image. One single radiant energy from emotion.
