Handmade reduction linocut print. Dimensions: 29.7 by 21cm approx Printed on Hosho paper using Caligo oil-based relief ink. A celebration of sea swimming with friends and spending time on the beach A limited edition run of 25 Made using the reduction technique. This is a method of block printing in which each colour layer is taken from the same block. More lino is removed from the block for each layer and each colour is printed on top of the last. This means that an entire edition must be printed in one go – once you have carved into the block for the next layer, you can’t go back to print more. Because of this it is sometimes referred to as the ‘suicide printing’- and so prints from a reduction edition are truly unique.
