Progress on Raven print ~

Working on the last block for the Raven print.

The block on the easel will be a dark grey. The one in progress uses the same image transferred to the block as the grey. It will be carved a little bigger on the perimeter, have carving for feathers and will print in black over the grey.

Vandercook 14 lockup bar ~

I couldn't find a lockup bar for this size of press
so we came up with our own version.

Vandercook 14 ~

Just a little picture of the Vandercook. There are grippers but they are on the right side of the cylinder as you see it here. I like to use this press if I am doing prints on thicker papers or prints that have more colors than I want to print by hand.
Such a peach ~
