A double plate etching of Ernest Shakleton's ship 'Endurance' with letterpress.

I've printed the edition of etchings over the past few weeks at the School of Art and letter-pressed them today at studionumbersix on the Adana. The plates are 7.5 x 10.5cm.
This is the first in a series/set I'm currently producing: V I R T U E S

Charm is up next.
'you look after me & I'll look after you' - letterpress print: deep red relief ink on buff grey somerset paper
(24pt gill bold condensed + a big wooden ampersand)

I printed them up today at our studionumbersix on the Adana. I did cards and posters, but thinking of adding a nice blue border to the posters to make them special...
