Since I published Janet Brooke‘s linocuts of City Churches last year, she has expanded her portfolio with eight more prints and it is my great pleasure to publish the complete set, as a preview of her new exhibition which runs from 18th May until 19th June at Salvation Army Headquarters, 101 Queen Victoria St, EC4. Janet wants you to know that these were all printed on her Imperial Press, dating from 1832 and manufactured by J. Cope & Sherwin, 5 Cumberland Place, Curtain Rd, Shoreditch.

    Great to know that someone is still producing lino cuts of this quality, I like them, but isn’t it sad to see how those hideous high rise buildings dwarf some of the churches. A truly appalling sign of the times that we live in when any sense of proportion and good design seems to have been completely lost.
