Artwork description:

The imagination of a child (and some adults who refuse to grow up!) can bring beautifully illustrated tales to life and there's nothing better than being so engrossed in a book that the characters have in fact left the pages and entered the quiet of your room.

A black and white etching and aquatint. I have redrawn my original sketch onto a grounded zinc plate using an etching needle and added an aquatint to achieve the tones. The plate is inked for each number in the small limited edition making every handmade print an original.

Orders are carefully wrapped in tissue, flat-packed between two layers of mount board and dispatched signed and tracked within seven days.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message!

Materials used:

Somerset Satin paper 200g, Intaglio inks, etching press
