Bryan Nash Gill
I was introduced to Bryan’s work a little over two years ago, and shortly after, my colleague Sara and I visited his studio in Connecticut. I was blown away by his stunning prints and space (he built his studio adjacent to his house, surrounded by carefully kept gardens and wild woods). Even more so, I was taken by his overwhelming enthusiasm and kindness. He grilled a chicken for us from a neighbor’s farm and made a big salad, and as we discussed art, books, and his work, it felt like we had known each other for years.
By the following May, we had produced a beautiful book together, Woodcut, and in the process had become great friends. I am particularly proud of this book. I loved working on it and I loved working with Bryan. I reach for it often when I’m in need of inspiration or perspective—or a friend. Bryan Nash Gill passed away on May 17th. We miss you, Bryan.
Later this month artist Bryan Nash Gill brings his stunning woodcut prints to the Chicago Botanic Garden. If you’re a fan of the book (or the new notecards) don’t miss this chance to see each arboreal ring up close. Just don’t touch—since we’re his publisher, we’d like to remind you that’s what the book (and the new notecards) are for. Enjoy the art and maybe buy an original print, too! Proceeds from work sold at the exhibition benefit the Garden.
Woodcut: Bryan Nash Gill

Streetwear brand Fourth is King has collaborated with woodcut artist Bryan Nash Gill to create a very unique and special edition t-shirt. The unisex tee features “Cedar Pole”—one of Nash’s woodcut relief prints that has been featured in exhibitions across the US, and can be seen in his recently published Woodcut book. The Fourth is King / Bryan Nash Gill collab is available in limited quantities in 3 colors, exclusively through Fourth is King. The bold simplicity of the woodcut makes for an ideal and captivating piece of wearable art.
Bryan Nash Gill’s relief prints made from slices of ash, willow, and honey locust trees, respectively. See more of this body of work in Woodcut, available now.
