The making or an Atrtist's book'
Every so often I am asked to give an illustrated talk about my work, or the latest project I have completed. Recently the subject being my limited eidition book 'An Alphabet of Scarborough'.
Other topic upon which I can talk being the historic and production of etchings. First discovered in 1464, the process hasn't altered in any way. Perhaps the materials are more pure, and readily accessible, but principally it hasn't changed one bit.
Lastly the art of a printmaker, covering etching, lino cutting, book production and wood engraving. Talks can be tailor made to suit any group. An hour being the shortest time I have spent talking but it can be longer.
