An Animal ABC - printing

Continued from last week...

I have an ongoing working relationship with The Print Block in Whitstable where all of the animals were hand printed by Suki. Once we had established between us the 4 colours, and how they needed to layer up for each one they were good to go and each letter has since been printed as a limited edition of 30. These are still available to purchase - they are 60 x 60cm, 4 colour screen prints at £100 each. Email me at: if you are interested in purchasing one - the full set is available to look at on my website HERE.
It was at this point that I started thinking of it as a book/ narrative and decided to write a rhyme for each letter, and kept aside a number of the edition of prints so that I could bind it together (at the lovely London Centre for Book Arts) into a hefty 50x50cm book.

Above are some pictures from this process.

This looks amazing Alice, well done. Your work and story telling of this adventure is great. Will there be an exhibition of your original work sometime? (Preferably on Tyneside) thank you for sharing the process.
