Mt. Tamalpais

Bolinas Ridge to Pt. Montara (Gulf of the Farallons) Bolinas Ridge to Duxbury Point (Gulf of the Farallons)
Gulf of the Farallons (diptych, 2004)
Tom began making Japanese-inspired linoleum and wood block prints of Mt. Tamalpais when he was a teenager. In 1975 he collected these small, mostly blue-and-white prints into his first handprinted book "28 Views of Mount Tamalpais". Since then, Killion has produced increasingly colorful woodcuts of Mt. Tam and its environs, all of which will be included in "Tamalpais Walking," Tom's forthcoming collaboration with poet Gary Snyder. This web page shows more recent work first, then moves backwards in time to early images from "28 Views." All prints are limited editions, signed and numbered.

Key to Abbreviations:
All prints are signed and numbered in pencil; dimensions are of the actual image itself, not including signature or paper margins, given in inches, height before width.
a.p. = artist's proofs (where color experiments are made before edition is pulled)
b.p. = book proofs (pages from handprinted books that were never bound in and are now sold separately as signed prints)
o.p. = out-of-print
w.p. = working proofs (have serious flaws or odd color variations)


Key to Printing History Terms:
1. "Multi-block reduction (cut) prints" are limited to one edition as blocks are destroyed in the printing process (see Technique page).
2. Editions: Second editions (II) of other multi-color prints involve recutting of color blocks and consequent variations in the final image. Some of the single color prints have been issued in multiple small editions with touch-up recutting ("cleaning-up") of blocks, but no significant changes in the printed image. With the exception of "Wave", "Seaweed" and "Mt. Tam from Wolfe Grade", no more than 350 prints (total of all editions and a.p.s) have been issued of any print.
3. "Giclées": Killion's digital reproductions are created with new generation "iris print" technology that enables the images to be printed on all-rag watercolor paper. All Killion's "giclée" prints are larger-size than the original woodcuts and have only been created after the woodcut editions have sold out (see information in How to Purchase Prints). All other Killion prints are handprinted by the artist from his original hand cut blocks.
