Printing the Giant Linocut

Carolyn Murphy is in the process of printing a giant A1 linocut commission for Macmillan. Currently at the half way stage, after 3 colours, there are spot colours to hand print, before it goes through the press twice more.

The scale of the linocut alone presents it’s own challenges. Take a look at the video to get a feel for the size!

The third colour transformed the print further today. Printed on the Polymetaal press at Hot Bed Press in Salford, it now looks a lot brighter.You can follow progress of this huge linocut print and learn more about the commission on Carolyn’s blog
