Printmaking today [ etching, wood-engraving , linocutting , lithography and more ] though having more practitioners than ever , is still not an art well-defined in the public mind .        With mass-reproduction of art-works established for over a century , folk will look at a print and ask , where is the original ? Quite a challenge   .Er.... .this is the original .

Show them artisanal scenes like this [ I actually have two arms ], a physical print on a fine heavy paper with sexy deckled edges, the time spent on block-preparation and editioning , the traces of hand and eye on every piece - and maybe we've begun to explain .
