Mount Baldy is located in the San Gabriel Mountain range in San Bernadino County. About 100 were printed by Bruce McAllister, unsigned, for the Scripps College yearbook, but the signed proofs printed by the artist are rare. Landacre used sweeping, curving parallel lines to describe the mountains in this diminutive wood engraving.
