A reduction linocut print of the historic Shambles in York, England.
This historic street near my home in the ancient city of York is world famous and is reputed to be the oldest shopping street in Europe. I wanted to bring it right up to date with a contemporary and bright image.
This is a limited edition linocut print. It was printed using the reduction method which means that after each layer more of the plate is cut away, so there is no going back and the print cannot be repeated. The total number of prints in this edition is nine.
It has been hand printed using oil based inks on 200gsm acid free paper. Please note that each print is individually hand printed and unique so there may be very small variations (for instance density of ink) from the one illustrated here.
This print is supplied UNFRAMED AND UNMOUNTED.
The title, artist's signature and edition number are written in pencil under the image.
Limted edition print. (9)
Image size without border 15 x 20 cm (approx 6" x 8") Paper size approx 21 x 30 cm (A4)
