Lino Prints

May 2017:An attempt to make another multi block print

This one didn’t work – you never know how a print is going to work out – I’m not that good an illustrator so I tend to fail more often than I succeed.  I cut it in three parts and tried to make a colour print but it wasn’t designed well.

Multi colour lino print

This method of cutting the block into pieces is really useful for creating a multi colour lino print without having to use any registration method.  I did this one first and then today I did the vegetablue and fruit one which was cut into four pieces.

Lino Print: Single Colour

This image forms part of my current theme : Everyday Things and it started as a single pen and ink drawing of a simple tea mug.  It has since been transformed into several monoprints and in this case a single colour lino print.

All the images are going to be collected into a bookwork using a coptic binding.  I am in the process of preparing the sheets and covers and practising coptic binding.
