This is a lino-print I designed, cut and printed on a hand-press in my attic studio.
It is not a digital print but an original limited edition print duced by hand. I have only printed 20 of these images.
Firstly I draw the image onto a piece of lino. Then I carefully carve it out, (loosing the odd finger in the cess) before inking it with hand rollers using linseed oil based printing inks. It is then placed flat on my press, covered with Somerset Satin paper and the mangle like roller of the press is turned...
I have never lost the excitement of pulling back the paper on the press to see what is there! Doing everything by hand duces unique images every time as tiny differences in ink used or the roller weight of the press can alter the outcome.
Finally, in pencil, I sign it, adding the edition number and title.
The image size is 11 x 39cm.
It comes wrapped in tissue paper and cellophane and posted in a cardboard tube.
