I have been working on a set of designs for a handmade book of prints: “Click Click: A Small Book of Cameras” and finally completed engraving the 35th block at the end of December, somewhere between the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. Each design will be printed directly from the original engraved block, by the artist (me) using a Vandercook proofing press. My small book of cameras will contain 30 engravings, printed end papers, a title page, page of text about the project and colophon page. This limited edition book will measure (mm) 120w x 170h and each copy will be signed.
