This linocut shows a crash of rhinos in all senses of the words. The collective noun for a group of rhinoceros is a "crash". Though would one really need multiple rhino before a "crash" would be a good description? Luckily, my crash of rhino are all on paper. These three are all headed for collision. The typography of the words represents their meaning; "crash" appears to implode and the stout letters of "Rhinos" are adorned with horn-like serifs.

This linoleum block printed rhinoceri are printed in dark gold ink with gold and turquoise words on Japanese kozo, or mulberry paper. Each print is 12.5" by 10" or 31.7 cm by 25.4 cm in dimension. There are 6 prints in the edition.

I love the weird and wonderful terms of venery - the collective nouns for groups of animals (and other things). Some are evocative, some strange and obscure. This is the first in a series of such prints.
