I design and carve each motif into linoleum before inking the plates and hand printing them using Alma, my 130 year old Victorian cast iron manual book press. There will be variations between each print, especially as this print contains several gradient rolls and it is deliberately underinked in places to achieve the shadow texture, making each print unique. *please note that the ink can appear shiny as this is traditional, oil-based ink*

Thank you very much for looking at my cards and prints.
