Remade lino printing press

October 14, 2018

 

My printing press has been rebuilt. I've been using an old wormy and battered book press for some larger prints. The wooden parts have been replaced with some salvaged oak and beach, making it 15cm wider. Now I can hopefully make some even larger prints. The Red kite design i've been working on, can be bigger than a sparrow now. Using an etching press to print linocuts seems to have become the norm nowadays but I still prefer to use my system. I feel the registration is better. I just wish I had the money and space for a nice albion or columbian press.
