Michael Atkin      Printmaker

etcher - block printer - wood engraver

Michael is convinced that etchings and lino - prints and wood engravings which are hand made and hand printed using traditional methods have a bright and prosperous future with discerning collectors.

Founded Bracken Press a 'private press' in 1974

Welcome to my website, which shows a selection of my limited edition prints.

I work in three different mediums, etchings, lino prints and wood engraving from my home based studio at the bottom of the garden which houses five antique printing presses from the 19th century which I use to create my prints.
