Hitchin Lavender Lino and Letterpress Print- Poster
Dispatches from a small business in
A five colour lino and letterpress reduction print, showing the beautiful lavender farm in Ickleford, near Hitchin, England, this is a unique piece of artwork, whether you love the style of these traditional yet modern prints or have special memories of the area.
This print shows the fields in bloom, with the sunflowers in the next field. Lavender was grown in Hitchin as early as the 1500's, and this beautiful farm is now open to the public, who can walk among the 25 miles of lavender rows, picking their own to enjoy at home.
Reviving the traditional techniques of linocutting, I wanted to celebrate my favourite parts of the town I was brought up in by making a series of beautiful prints. The original prints were made from drawings which I transferred to lino, and made using the reduction technique in three or four colours. Finished with lettering hand printed using vintage letterpress type, the original prints were limited to a run of 20. I hope they will resonate with others who love the town too, as well as those who appreciate the unique nature of a linocut print.
The print sold in this listing is a hand printed, signed and numbered original A3 print, or a high quality digital reproduction of the original artwork on 300gsm card, made as an A3 or A4 poster (choose your preferred size when ordering). It will be sent with a cardboard backing in a clear compostable sleeve.
