the press in action

here are some shots from the making of last year’s 3 color christmas cards. I did a reductive linoleum cut in 3 colors – grey blue for snowflakes which I also did blind to get white on white, red for the scarves and then black for the outlines and the cats. Then inside text was red. A total of 4 passes through the press. I made about 100 of these and send out over 70. There are a few left for sale as cards and as flat images which I have framed.
