Artist's description:

The house of Eld

This picture is based upon a scene in a strange story titled 'THE HOUSE OF ELD' by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894). The tale describes a boy who seeks and finds the fabled house of Eld. The text continues, “So he came to that wood, and entered in, and he was aware of a house in a low place, where funguses grew, and the trees met, and the steaming of the marsh arose about it like a smoke. It was a fine house, and very rambling; some parts of it were ancient like the hills, and some but of yesterday, and none finished; and all the ends of it were open, so that you could go in from every side. Yet it was in good repair, and all the chimneys smoked.”

This print is pulled from relief plates cut from sheets of rubber, a variation of letterpress. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the rubber sheet is then rolled up with ink and pressed to paper, producing the print. The completed edition made 3 copies. The paper and ink are of high quality and should present no keeping difficulty. The print would fit straight into a 10x12 inch frame if required.

Materials used:

printing inks, Lambeth cartridge 130gsm
