Swing High print for Pedlars
Pedlars, purveyors of fine European household items, now have this exclusive print for sale. I carved 5 individual lino blocks, then had to register the buggers (none of this lightweight, reduction cut business, you see)! Anyway, this is the result and here's what Retro To Go had to say about it in their review:
Pedlars has done it again with another great limited edition print.
The latest in their long line of exclusives is Swing High by Helen Ingham, which is restricted to 32 editions. The artist specialises in using letterpress with this particular design using traditional wooden type and hand-carved lino block and is printed onto cotton rag paper using period machinery. Besides the old-fashioned techniques used, the print is also worth considering for its delightful retro image of two woman on a swing boat.
The prints cost £595 from Pedlars.
