Big Prints

This brings to a close the first really large series of prints I've done, at 60 x 85 cm.

The bigger size brings specific problems, as follows.

a. the plate is much more cumbersome, so it's harder to move it, and move round it
b. It's harder to make changes.
c. It takes much longer to change designs.
d. Mistakes in design and errors of technique are exaggerated.
e. It's much harder to place the paper on the plate to print.

The extra costs are actually ofset by the fact that one makes less work.

I'm mainly happy with the results. I like grandeur in art, I think it's a neglected quality, indeed it's a quality that post-modernism seems to millitate against.
