Lino Registration Front Cover


Embarking on an exciting new project this month - to design and print an edition of 200 album covers for Guy Malkerson's new album 'Folklore'. I produced a linocut for the front cover and designs for polymer plates to print the inside, spine and back cover in blue and gold. All printed on 100% recycled card stock.

Huge thanks to Ruth Broadwayand Angie Butler for the loan of your presses for this project. My trusty Adana is having a rest and in need of a checkup so I'm extremely grateful to have your wonderful support to enable me to complete this project.
