Forest of Bluebells - Print

  • £200.00

There's a tiny window of magic sometime between April and May in the oak forests of Dartmoor. It's when the bluebells appear, and the dappled woodland floor turns to purple.

During the clean-up process for projects, there is often a little bit of ink leftover. Not so much to scrape back into the pot, but too much to simply wash away. These prints are made of that leftover ink. The proportions of colours are dependent on the original print run, as such, they are completely unique. This is because the amount of ink leftover from a print run will never be exactly the same, and these prints use up all of that leftover ink. These prints are priced based on their uniqueness.

Our "regular" posters are relatively easy to replicate, and in these cases a "good" print is one that can be repeated over a short print run. The ink is typically applied as a single layer (even in the case of multiple colours). These prints, however, are quite different. They use the last bits of ink from a print run. The brayer is rolled over the letters to transfer as much colour as possible onto the wood type, giving a wonderful, mottled effect. (Affectionately referred to as "bad printing" in letterpress circles.) They are rich in texture, and impossible to repeat from one print to the next.
