We offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more and a flat-rate shipping charge of $9.95 on orders less than $100.

Shipping artwork requires special packaging and attention. If you are ordering framed prints, canvas prints, or originals, we will add a surcharge to cover this extra packaging, delivery cost, and insurance, even if your order totals $100 or more.

As you can imagine, it is much more expensive to deliver a large, framed print than it is to deliver an unframed print on paper. We want your items to arrive in perfect condition, no matter their size. If your item requires a surcharge it will be noted on the product page as you make your selection, and in your shopping cart when you check out. Our surcharges are based on product weight and size, and reflect our actual costs to safely deliver your artwork.

If you’d like to pick up your order in Duluth or Grand Marais to save on shipping or surcharge fees, call 218-387-2491 and place your order by phone. We welcome all phone orders!

Questions? Call 218-387-2491. We’re here to help and available daily from 10-5 Mon-Sat and 10-4 Sun (CST).

Winter Bees & Other Poems of the Cold

By Rick Allen

Rick Allen at Sivertson

By Joyce Sidman (Author) and Rick Allen (Illustrator). Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2014. Hardcover, 32 pages. Winner of the 2015 Claudia Lewis Poetry Award.

Dusk fell
and the cold came creeping,
came prickling into our hearts . . .

How do animals brave the longest and coldest season of the north?

See feathery tundra swans settle into sleep. Watch beavers dive deep beneath the frozen pond and moose wade through sparkling snow. Hear the chickadee’s fee-bee from the shelter of an evergreen.

Discover winter’s safe places for all these hardy creatures—how they snuggle warmly and survive until spring’s warmth returns.

In this outstanding picture book collection of poems by Newbery Honor-winning poet Joyce Sidman, learn about the secret lives of animals. Poems are paired with stunning linoleum print illustrations by Rick Allen that celebrate nature’s beauty and power.

“Sidman and Allen discover warmth, community and wisdom in the dead of winter …. Each poem brings a sense of humor, respect, or wonder to its subject.” — Publisher’s Weekly

Rick Allen

Rick has been an artist and printmaker for over 30 years. He grew up in Duluth, Minnesota, and studied history at St. Olaf College and the University of Chicago before veering from the scholarly path and attending the Rhode Island School of Design. He subsequently worked as a commercial and editorial illustrator, and in 2003 started The Kenspeckle Letterpress with his wife, artist Marian Lansky. At that time he began experimenting with wood engraving and linocut, and the rest is history. Rick always has “one or two feet in the 19th Century” and loves nothing more than producing printed ephemera.
