If “meat-and-three” is the South’s best use of math, Nashville’s iconic Arnold’s is the calculus teacher. In this limited edition letterpress print, Riley Carroll captures a feast for two at Arnold’s, from the red cafeteria trays to the essential sweet tea and pie. Printed in four color letterpress by laser cut wood blocks on 100c Cougar opaque paper at Nashville’s Isle of Printing. 18"x24". Limited edition of 180 signed and numbered by the artist.

ISLE OF PRINTING
Nashville’s Isle of Printing specializes in making the unusual happen and thrive on giving novelty a place at or above the mundane. Print Meister Bryce McCloud claims to have been found on a misty morning in 1997 swaddled in a bespoke hand printed paper suit. Since them, Bryce has sought to do his family and uncle proud by manufacturing novelty letterpress ephemera and inflicting public art mayhem on the largest possible audience allowed by the laws of nature.
