Hot off the "hand pulled" Press!

Wow. What a two weeks. Through the middle of it was the carving of the monumental woodcut. The paper used for this print is a Japanese Sekishu. I used a paste to seam together three 40 x 50 inch sheets together before registering it onto the block. I printed three of these by hand ( I think I have rid myself of the press for woodcut printing for now). Soon I will have a gallery up with some more detailed shots.
I ended up having to cut the block into four different panels to fit it into the back of my little car. Cannot wait to get back home so I can piece it back together and print again!
