RAINBOWS ARE MADE: POEMS BY CARL SANDBURG -Set of seven wood engravings by Fritz Eichenberg for the book of the same title. Selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins, Published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York, 1982.
Each print was created for one of the six sections of the book, which were defined by Sandburg himself: 1. People; 2. Word Play; 3. Everyday Things; 4. The Seasons, Harvest, Prairies; 5. The Sea; and 6. Night Themes, Stars, Moonlight. Eichenberg also created a portrait of Sandburg for the Frontispiece.

While the images are reproduced in the book, Eichenberg also printed impressions directly from the hand-carved woodblocks. He ​printed editions of just 50 numbered and pencil signed impressions. Each image measures 7.5” by 6” plus margins. The prices vary depending on the number of impressions we have remaining.
The complete boxed sets of all seven images come with a hardcover copy of RAINBOWS ARE MADE. To encourage keeping the sets together, we are discounting the price of the individual prints so the complete boxed set of seven wood engravings is $1,500.00.
