Print Run at the John Jarrold Print Museum

1 Jul

(I have a bit of updating to do so this blog was intended for a couple of weeks back!)

Two weeks ago, with the help from the volunteers and experts at the John Jarrold Printing museum, I completed my print run of the poem and lino cut that I have been working on.

The poem, ‘The Printing Press’ by Christopher Pearse Cranch, is about Gutenberg’s press and how the printed word opened up communication across the world! It was the machine that gave us the Gutenberg Bible and all books from then on!

Below are some images of the type setting and lino block in production as well at the machine used at the museum to print the limited edition of 100 copies. These will be available for sale at this year’s Norwich Print Fair and 50% will go back to the Museum!!
