Nearly There…

21 Feb

almost there

 

I used my sweet little antique press today to carry on printing a little lino block.

Here’s a closer view of the cast iron press, which is probably early Victorian and made in London, by Sampson Mordan & Co. These are often called bookbinding or nipping presses but it’s possibly one of the very first Fax (Facsimile) machines, advertised at the time as a “letter copying press”.

This little block is part of a print I am editioning, designed by Jamie Reid for GS Artists, who are showing an exhibition of his radical art in Swansea at the moment.
