Printing book covers

Subs and I went down to Borough to Intaglio Printmakers to buy printing inks.  I want to print some book covers using oil based inks rather than pasted papers.  I bought black, burnt umber and others.

I made a few sheets today using just these two colours and making marks on the paper as well as adding paper shapes. I also created a stamp using string strung onto card which produced some nice thin dark lines.

I also worked with turning over the once printed paper strips and relaid the again on top of the paper, ready to print.  I used a japanese baren, it’s perfect for home printing of relief prints and monoprints.
