Colophons I

Work made for William Morris’ Red House as part of This is How To Live – a project between Studio Maniold and National Trust 2012.

Colophons, 2012
Firewood, printers ink, acrylic, paper

Inspired by printing blocks and Chinese signature seals or ‘chops’, I have used roughly split chunks of wood to make end-grain prints. Colophons refers to indexes: the printer’s emblem on books and manuscripts.
