The Details

I never really enjoyed printing by hand but, without access to a press, my options are pretty limited. So I've been thinking I should make an effort to try it again. Luckily, I came across the No Press Print Exchange which gave me an excuse to pill out my baren and work something out. I carved a linoleum block over the course of two or three days and then printed out a small edition on the kitchen counter. I decided to wax the prints to make them a bit transparent and a little more complicated. They aren't the most elaborate prints I've ever made but there was a pretty tight deadline for the exchange. I do think they came out pretty cool. For such a simple carve, the amount of detail that comes out is surprising.
