Artist's description:

The magical world of reading, when fairytales come to life. I 'scratched' my design onto a grounded zinc plate which is then etched or 'bitten' when placed in acid. Ink is then applied, worked into the grooves, wiped off and left on in some areas to create subtle tone. This painterly inking process is repeated for every number in the small edition which is then handprinted using a press. Orders are wrapped in acid-free tissue and carefully flat-packed between two layers of cardboard in a stiffened envelope.

Materials used:

Somerset satin paper 250g, Intaglio printing inks, zinc plate

Fairy Library (2012)
