I am somewhat please with how my publication looks finished, I am please with the binding and also with the quality of both the paper and the print, I decided to choose for it to be saddle stitched as I did not have enough pages for the publication to be perfect bound, I was able to still print on gloss paper though. 208 more words

Lino Print

I produced this lino print as part of a printing workshop. I think that my idea was successful in conveying my product however I don’t think it was executed to my best standard, this is partly because I was unable to cut round circle in the lino when I was creating my design and also due to not having a printing press I had to ink the lino and then place the paper on top and rub over the paper with my hands to get the ink to print, however, because of this the ink didn’t spread out evenly resulting in the uneven colouring on the print. 140 more words
