Look What I’ve Got!

Look what I’ve got! Ner nerner ner ner! ๐Ÿ˜›

Husb and I did a road trip up to Ynyshir in The Rhondda Valley today and bought this gorgeous Victorian book press off the charming Mike. I’ll use it for lino and wood block prints. I don’t know the make or date of manufacture so if anyone out there knows, I’d be grateful for any information. There’s a very worn logo on it, with a Lion and the letter ‘D’ underneath. Nearly corpsed Husb when he carried it in from the car.

We also crammed in a visit to the re-opened Cynon Valley Museum and Gallery in Aberdare which is showing an exhibition by Gayle Rogers, ‘The Parochial Artist’, for another week. Gayle is also a founder of The Workers Gallery in Ynyshir so we popped in there as well. A grand day out.

For a limited period I am putting a new drawing of an ancient monument on my Artfinder gallery every day. ย If you’d like to check them out, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    You jammy b….r ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a real beauty and just the job for lino cut printing. As I’m shortly going to be moving to Wales it’s good to see there are interesting finds to be had!
