This is an original, hand printed, two color woodblock print by Lawrence J. Goldsmith. The woodcut is titled, Two Fish, and is number 13 of an edition of 200.
After drawing the fish, I cut the design into a block of pine wood using a knife, gouges and other tools. For each print, ink was applied to the wood with a brayer (roller), the paper set against the wood, and the back of the paper was then hand rubbed with a baren, a tool used to transfer the ink from the wood to the paper. (Note of interest: Japanese styles of papers are often called rice paper; however, they do not contain rice or rice fibers.)
I will do my best to answer any questions. Thank you.
