Today I have been printing my lino blocks for the artist book I have been making. It took ages to carve the blocks, which are quite detailed, but at last I am ready to print. There is something quiet and meditative about printing. My kids went back to school today so I could put 100% of my focus onto making the prints. And focus is what you need to do to get everything working.
I got the 4 images done and one page of text, when I ran out of paper so I will print the rest of the text tomorrow and make the covers on the weekend.
Then next week assembling the book (ie gluing the pages together).
I can’t wait to put it together, but I haven’t even finished printing the pages – patience………I really happy with the chunky rustic text and the way that relates to the images. We will just have to see how it progresses………
