Old Lino Cut.

This carved lino has been sitting around for months waiting for me to print a proof copy. I was never happy with the border, it was only done as a sort of doodle, but seeing how badly it has printed, it has to go !
Here is the inked up plate above and the terrible print below. There is just too much blank lino which makes it very difficult to get a clear print, so as well as the border I want to cut off all the extra lino too.
 Right, that's better, and it will print even better when I trim the lino closer and tidy up some of the image itself. Now that I can see a print, there are lots of little bits that need to be carved away. I will mount this image onto a shellac sealed piece of board for stability.
