'Blackbird' Drypoint Print by Samantha Barnes. Edition of 12 only
A beautiful hand-pulled drypoint print made on an antique press by me, in an edition of only 12.
'Blackbird' would make a fabulous gift for a child or adult. He would sit beautifully in a bedroom pointing to a window or placed somewhere close to a light switch (this is a super place to keep a smallish frame)
It is printed on watercolour Somerset paper 300g and comes mounted and flat-packed.
There are only 12 prints in total, each handmade by me. Due to the very fact that each print is handmade, each will be slightly different making each an 'original'. Sadly I can't show all 12 prints here but I can promise you that all are as lovely as the one shown - I wouldn't allow them to leave my studio if not!
Each print is numbered, titled and signed and dated by me. On the reverse of the print is an a5 'verification of print'. This document guarantees its originality and shows a photo of me printmaking at my press. It contains edition details of your print and explains the 'drypoint printmaking' process, a method of artistic delivery since the days of Hogarth.
The packaging and delivery of 'Blackbird' is perfect for gifting. (please note that it is NOT actually giftwrapped though)
