I am selling this magnificent impression showing fast flowing water crossing the rocky terrain at Langstrath Beck in Cumbria (North West England, bordering Scotland), for the total cost of AU$229 (currently US$155.67/EUR147.62/GBP127.08 at the time of this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
If you are interested in purchasing this dramatic proof-state etching—note how the careful wiping of the plate has created a darkly toned foreground with sparkling light in the water and a pale distance—please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
