Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books
never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever.
No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal
fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons. Franklin D. Roosevelt
I got some of Stuart Semple’s black pigments and used it to linoprint some Black Shucks. I’m still figuring out the mix but I’m getting a flatter, matter finish than I ever have done with my regular relief inks. It’s good stuff!
I’m intending to work into the plate a lil more and then have some of these for sale on my etsy, keep your eyes peeled for that!
