Having always been a fan of my friend, Jean's printmaking, and the lovely graphic chronicle of Nashville's history that is the catalog of Hatch Show Print it stood to reason that I would eventually try linocut printing. Frankly, it's a lot of work and a lot of fun. I can't wait for the next block of time when I can sit with my cutting tools and make more.
The picture and background are both from plates that I cut for this run, The illustration is printed on linen litho paper and the background is printed on canson drawing paper. The assembled bookmarks were sealed with a high-heat laminator (in other words, my machine requires a "carrier") and finished it off with a black satin ribbon.
The dimensions are roughly 6.75 x 3.35. The ribbon is approximately 5 inches long.
