The Enlightened Hound linoprints celebrate the instinctive principles dogs follow for a simple and contented life. We humans can learn much from their canine wisdom!
The prints have been created using authentic fonts from original Wild West and US Civil War posters. The letters are hand carved onto lino printing plates, then each poster is individually hand-printed on acid free archival 170gsm printmaking paper with traditional linseed oil inks, using hand-mixed colours, inspired by the American Colonial era.
Each print used 4 different lino plates and three colours to produce. Each plate/colour is printed separately by hand.
The vintage style, slightly distressed lettering and the typographical style is reminiscent of old Wild West Wanted Posters and 19th century American Show Posters.
They work beautifully as a series or as a single print and will appeal to dog lovers everywhere. They make a perfect gift for a dog owner.

My prints were inspired by my Portuguese Water Dog, Figo - named after the legendary Portuguese footballer. My Enlightened Hound prints celebrate the principles dogs instinctively follow for a simple and contented life. Figo is a constant source of amusement, relaxation and happiness and I believe we humans could benefit from adopting some of their canine wisdom! The typographic style of the prints is inspired by early American show posters and Wild West Wanted posters and use original fonts from that era.
