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 produced 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 process) 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 produces 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 which fits into a standard Ikea 23 x 50cm frame.
It comes wrapped in tissue paper and cellophane and posted in a cardboard tube.
Thanks for looking and please take a peep at my other Folksy Shop "cycle art"!
