"Bon a Tirer"


"Bon a Tirer"


Image size: 6" x 7-1/2" - Edition 40 signed and numbered 12 remarqued artist proofs

  This was my first woodcut for the Christmas series.

  Created in 1976 the title of the print means "That by which the others are judged."

  A french term used by printers.

  As the block is carved, it is inked and a print is pulled. Adjustments are made to the wood block and print pulled.

  This is then the master print or Bon a Tirer. All the other prints will then be pulled to this standard.
