Our neck of the woods

Vansons Rubber Ink, recycled paper stock, paper size 300x400mm 

Hand set and hand printed letterpress using a variety of Victorian wooden type and page ornaments.  The tail pieces were salvaged from Edinburgh and have tiny circular marks which are evidence of where a wood-borer tried his taste for old ink and spirit saturated lignin - judging by the number of holes, I'm lead to believe it didn't taste too good!  The pair of leaves are made by Delittle of York.  The central tuscan type is William Page& Co of USA (mid to late 1800's)
