New Endeavours

I was at the fantastic open day at The Grange in Shropshire last weekend representing the Gwydir Press and our first hand-bound, letterpress book Pwyll-Prince of Dyfed. I met John Purcell of John Purcell Paper there and found fantastic 'paper' that inspired me to make abstract, large scale cyanotype test pieces. These will eventually become platinum prints once I sort out a working method. This is me making the very first test print at Gwydir on hand -coated Arches Platine paper; the print is approximately 110cm x 80cm. It's not what I want as I didn't expose it for enough time but I will get there! You can see the proper blueprint here on our Facebook page; ihatesocialmedia.
