Wood engraving on lemonwood   65 x 97 mm

      The image is of my own Columbian platen press which i used to print the edition of prints.

   George Clymer originally sdesigned the Columbian press in the USA back in 1812, however it wasn't patronised and he moved to London. The press became a great sucess here with many being made.
