CHRISTMAS CARD PRINTING

Black printing ink, black fingers the smell of turpentine

guillotine cut the paper

roll the ink roll the block

block down on the paper, about 30 prints an hour going flat out

an old bookbinding press bought at a Hartland Auction 1982 for £5

card no.1 no buttons to press, there's a good rhythm to rolling and printing

I had a teacher in my junior school who thought the classroom very dull so we printed linocuts of knights in in chain mail right on the walls!

job done its so good to DO things
