Artist's description:

On the night of 19/20th January 1915 two Zeppelins set out to bomb targets in Humberside. Bad weather barred their path and both pilots became lost over Eastern England. One pilot realised his position on sighting Happisburgh light, and adjusted course to bomb the alternative target of Great Yarmouth. Ironically of course, Happisburgh light was established to save life, not to assist ruining it.

This print is pulled from an engraving cut from a sheet 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 technique does not accommodate reprinting, so the edition is forever fixed at 5 copies.

Materials used:

oil based black printing ink, Heritage Bookwhite 160gsm
