Sailor, RNPS (Portrait 7)
Sailor, RNPS (Portrait 7)
Linoprint, printed using Black Caligo safe wash relief ink
Print dimension is 15.3 x 10.2 cm
Variable Edition size of 2385

The first 100 prints of this edition are printed on vintage book pages with a page size of 21.6 x 13.3 cm. The remainder of the edition is printed on plain paper.

This linoprint is my first sailor print which pays remembrance to the 2385 men of the Royal Naval Patrol Service (RNPS) who were lost at sea during WW2, and who never made it home. These men are still at sea and so the edition size of this print has been specifically chosen to pay remembrance to every one of these men.

Printed on to vintage book pages of 'Trawlers Go to War', the first 100 linoprints of the edition also offer a glimpse into the history of the RNPS and true testimonies of life as a serviceman in WW2 serving on small boats such as trawlers, as written within the book.

Each of these prints is uniquely different, due to the text on each book page and to the artwork being handprinted. As a result there may be tiny variations between each print. Individually printing each image without a printing press, and using a wooden spoon, can result in tiny imperfections, as is the nature of handprinting. I think this adds to the beauty and uniqueness of each print.

The book pages are also vintage and are not in pristine perfect condition. They may also have slight imperfections to them but each page that I use I ensure that I am happy with the finished print and that I would be happy to display it on my wall.
