Hope Baptist church unearthed a box of old printing blocks and plates and wanted me to print them. Most of them were the sort of blocks that were made by photoengraving onto metal and used for printing pictures in newspapers and newsletters etc. There were small round portraits of men. Bigger ones of buildings and groups in the church such as Scouts, knitting groups and baptism gatherings. And then some larger copper engravings of John Fawcett who was the founder of the church. There were about 30 blocks and it was quite a challenge! The large copper engravings were quite impressive plates which I printed in an intaglio style. The rest were designed to be printed by machine so I did a lot of tests to get good prints off them and the best prints came using dampened Japanese Ho-Sho paper, rollers and very thinly rolled Caligo Safe Wash Relief Ink.
