Print: Dutch Gilt Relief Print on a stencilled background

Dutch Gilt Relief printing is where a lino plate has metal leaf applied to its surface which is brought into contact with treated, sized paper. When pressure is applied, the non-recessed surface will leave leaf on the paper, whereas the recessed areas will not. When perfectly dry, the excess leaf is carefully removed revealing the pattern. 

Block: No.1, hand carved lino

Total Size: 10¼ x 7¼ inches. 260 x 185 mm (approx)

Paper: Oxgangs

Oxgangs is a studio-made paper using pulped paper scraps plus linen threads, hemp cord and any other discarded natural fibre found in a bookbinding workshop.

Most of the papers have tiny fragments of text printed paper in the surface which adds interest and character to each sheet.

Each sheet has uneven edges known as natural deckles.
