Litho print for Maps and Ghosts project

This project is produce an artist’s book and possibly other things such as a poster and fabric work.  Initially I am collecting maps from the first half of the 20th century of the West Midlands, and some images of my family.  Also making some drawings and sketches and trying out approaches to printing the sheets for the book.

Trial litho print, work in progress

This first trial print was drawn on folex at Bower Ashton on March 7th and printed a week later.  I was particularly interested in trying to depict smoke, not really bothering about composition.

This is quite a large print at 40cm x 40cm, the final ones will be far smaller.
