Autumn EP by Red Deer Sleeping

"Listen. . 
With faint dry sound, 
Like steps of passing ghosts, 
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees 
And fall."

(Adelaide Crapsey - 1878–1914)

This poem features as part of a song on the EP ‘Autumn' by Red Deer Sleeping.

Golden Type

After typesetting the songs for the Autumn EP outer sleeve, I am pleased that Engravers type printed better than expected! So thank you again to Angie Butler who lent me the type and is very happy for me now to keep the type so I can continue to make use of it. I promise not to leave it in hibernation for so long! : ))

Linocut printed on the adana 8 x 5 in gold linseed oil based ink.

I found a beautiful botanical illustration of British Oak. by W.H. Fitch which I traced and carved onto lino. The lino was the perfect size to print on the adana 8 x 5.
