The Owl and the Pussycat


Original single-block linocut.  Dimensions are 26.5 x 21cm image.  Hand printed on Zerkall paper using Lawrence linseed oil based relief printing inks.  This is an edition of 15.  

The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear is one of my favourite poems and I could imagine many more prints inspired by this poem.  I really enjoyed carving the text, which is a new element in my designs.  I wanted to create a print that used my interest in mark-making yet also celebrated the narrative of the poem in an uncomplicated way.

Prints are supplied unframed and unmounted.  Postage is Free.
