    Like old Japanese woodblocks, the blocks are just as engaging as the prints. S.Berris

    Yes I agree, the blocks are works of art in themselves, and the prints are lovely. Makes me wonder if I could have a go at one as my Christmas card this year, I have been taught wood engraving (by John O’Connor) which I enjoyed very much, but I have never tried lino cuts.

    I concur! — seeing the artwork PLUS the materials is a wonderful combo. By showing us the “printing plates” created by the artist, we can derive extra enjoyment of the intricacy of the images, and his dedication to craftsmanship. I have long admired British artists including Bawden and Ravilious — and the current day crop — Ed Kluz, Jonny Hannah, Mark Hearld, Clive Hinks-Jenkins — plus, ta da, Christopher Brown, proves that all your amazing traditions are in very, very good hands.
    Onward and upward!

    I’m lucky to own a few pieces of Chris Brown’s work, and to be acquainted with him. Lovely work by a true gent.

    Wonderful to see this when we are pressed down so heavily by ‘digitalism’
