Linocut Boy Book

 A new printing handbook by Nick Morley (aka Linocut Boy):

I'm thrilled to be featured in it!

You can see more pages from the book, and order it, here. It looks to be incredibly useful if you want to know anything about lino printing, and is full of simply beautiful images, if you just want to drool over fabulous prints.

Last minute shopping

If, like me, you haven't done a smidge of Christmas shopping yet, don't worry! There's always hope (literally): a pop-up shop at beautiful Hope Garden Furniture in Observatory. 

For a number of reasons I've decided to close Henri Kuikens prints next year (and I'll write more about that in another post). So this will probably be the last sale I'll have of my remaining stock; I'll have samples and one-offs as well as some of the old favourites.

Essie Letterpress Almanac

In September my lemon tree blossomed and bore fruit for the first time ever. At about the same time, Essie Letterpress asked me whether I'd contribute to their artists' almanac. I leapt at the chance, of course, both to participate in the project and to document and celebrate my lovely tree.

I scanned my pen drawing, then copied the scan and erased appropriate parts to create two colour "plates" that would fit together perfectly when printed. 

I haven't seen the final print yet, but judging by the photos Essie did a wonderful job. 

You can buy a copy here.
