PRINTS

All are handprinted from Peter Grant's original Linocuts using Caligo Inks.

LINOCUT TO LINOPRINT

The drawing or sketch is transferred to the Lino using good old fashioned Carbon Paper – remembering to reverse the image left to right, otherwise any lettering would be back to front, or the tram driver would be sitting on the wrong side!

The best Lino is brown – but is now almost impossible to get – its place having been taken by Grey Lino which is softer and easier to cut – but more crumbly - making fine lines more challenging.

The details of the picture are carved out using specialist cutters and gouges.

This can take days to do, and a different “block” is needed for each colour.

When cutting is finished the block is very carefully inked making sure that every part which is to print has an even film of ink – a job which takes practise – and a large waste paper bin! Enormous pressure is required to transfer the ink to the printing paper. There is nothing more rewarding than to peel back the paper to reveal the picture (more or less) as you imagined it.

 

ALL PRICES INCLUDE CARRIAGE AND PACKING IN THE UK.
