The magic of Albion

Cabinet ced2At the end of this project I am going to stock the cabinet with a few carefully chosen items including books I have met along the way, a video, a vial of spring water, and a printed version of this blog. That is where woodcut printing using a traditional Albion Press from around the 1850s comes in: the woodcut print is going on the cover of the blog. I am working with artist-printer Ced Titcombe who has produced a woodcut based on the fungal shapes I have been investigating in the Forest. There is simply something quite magical about hand-press printing: a crude process refined to perfection. Thanks Ced for taking this on. Only 200 to go!
