This primitive or folk art butcher chop beef cuts print by Edward M. Fielding harkens back to the day of the local butcher shops and makes a fine decorative print for the kitchen or local shop.
The piece is a “PNG” file which means it can be purchased with your choice of background color or on products such as t-shirts, coffee mugs, throw pillows and other products as well as fine art prints and canvases. Metal and acrylic prints are also available. Metal is especially attractive in high traffic areas as it can be easily wiped down.
A butcher is a person who may slaughter animals, dress their flesh, sell their meat or do any combination of these three tasks. They may prepare standard cuts of meat and poultry for sale in retail or wholesale food establishments. A butcher may be employed by supermarkets, grocery stores, butcher shops and fish markets, slaughter house, or may be self-employed.
An ancient trade, whose duties may date back to the domestication of livestock, butchers formed guilds in England as far back as 1272. Today, many jurisdictions offer trade certifications for butchers. Some areas expect a three-year apprenticeship followed by the option of becoming a master butcher.

Wood Prints are a unique way to create stunning decor with the images in the Edward Fielding portfolio of over 4,500 images that can be ordered as wood prints.
Wood Prints – Just in time for Christmas, unique artwork printed on wood panels.
Our wood prints are made from 3/4″ thick maple wood and include D-clips, mounting hooks, and nails for mounting onto your wall (see below).
Why print on wood?
Photos printed on wood receive the same benefits as artwork, creating a beautiful and lasting commemoration of your artwork. To print a photo on wood is exactly what it sounds like – we take digital files and print them directly on sustainable plywood.
Wood photo prints differ from other methods like photo mounting and dye sublimation printing on wood in that it does not print the picture on paper first and then glue or heat transfer the picture to the wood surface. The picture is literally printed directly onto the wood surface, providing a richer, more vibrant result.
Grain is king with wood “canvas”
It’s all about the grain. One of the coolest features of wood photo printing is how the natural lines of the wood grain show through the lighter colors of an picture or photo. The primary reason for this is that no white ink is used in the printing process, so any white color is replaced with the natural color of the wood.
Each Print is Unique
Plywood is such a cool canvas for printing because every print is unique. Like a fingerprint, no two sheets of plywood have the same grain signature, so every print – regardless if the same picture is used – becomes a unique piece of art. The natural color of plywood also makes for a great frame.
PODs or Print On Demand is just one of the amazing technologies we enjoy in the Internet fueled economy. POD can pertain to book or artwork is basically affordable custom manufacturing. Products created only when the customer places an order.
Print on demand (POD) is a printing technology and business process in which copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received, allowing books to be printed singly, or in small quantities. While build to order has been an established business model in many other industries, “print on demand” developed only after digital printing began, because it was not economical to print single copies using traditional printing technology such as letterpress and offset printing.
Before digital printing it would have been prohibitively expensive to produce a one off product. Imagine going to a letterpress shop and asking the printer for a quote to print a single business card or a single wedding invitation. It just wouldn’t happen.
Print On Demand for Authors
Vanity printers have been around for decades. Printers who would print a number of books for a “self-published” author looking to market their own books or perhaps create books as a promotion or giveaway item. These authors were interested in bypassing the traditional mass publishing companies and create products directly. Often this meant living with box loads of books in the garage or storage unit for years.
Now print on demand publishers such as Lulu or Amazon’s CreateSpace can inexpensively inventory and print and ship a book on demand when a buyer wants a single copy. And they can offer these books on vast merchandising sites such as Amazon.
This is the method I used to create and sell my books “the Quotable Westie” and “Pugs”.
The print quality is not what you’d expect from a high quality coffee table book printed in Italy. But the print on demand digital printing method allows the author to offer a unique book at a very affordable price. These little books make great gift items and the quality is acceptable.
For the buyer, POD books allows for more choices and undeserved niches on subjects and topics might never make it to the shelves of a national chain store book merchant.
How To Create POD books
Creating POD books can be a bit tricky but vendors such as Lulu and Createspace offer downloadable templates to use. Straight text is the easiest way to create a book as their are no graphics to format but it is possible to layout a photo or graphic heavy book, page by page in Photoshop. All of the information can be found on the various vendor websites. Cover images can be licensed and cover designers offer their services online. Don’t skimp on the cover as this is the main marketing vehicle for any book.

One of the impressive things about the Epson P600 is its handling of black and white images. There are 4 different black links inside the printer. Three of these inks work in combination to print over a wider dynamic range than just using one ink. There are two different blacks that are selectable depending on the paper you are using (1 for photo-gloss and 1 for matte finish). Note that switching between the blacks will use up a little bit of ink, but Epson has minimized this considerably.
In the excellent series of video blogs, “The Art of Photography” by Ted Forbes, Ted talks about black and white photography printing using the Epson P600.

Classic neon sign outside of O’Rourke’s Diner a landmark on the North End of Middletown, Connecticut’s main street. Fine art photography by Edward M. Fielding
The diner was established in 1941 by John O’Rourke, who later brought the 1946 Mountain View diner car that anchored the diner’s distinctive appearance into Middletown.
About the image: Here the delicate and innocent flower is represented in white while the background of rough, old wood is allowed to go dark. The background is a find from a local barn restoration company. They tell me that it is a raccoon stretcher used to skin raccoon. Just one of the many interesting things the barn company finds when salvaging old barns in New Hampshire and Vermont. The wood has wonderfully deep cracks and is shaped kind of like a small ironing board. You can see nail marks in it from where the held down the animal. Nice huh? And you thought it was all just about a pretty flower.
