(l) Linocut – Giraffe Journey on ‘L’Afrique’ Map


There are several collective nouns for giraffes but the one I like the most is ‘A Journey of Giraffes’, and it seems most appropriate when you see them at a distance on open ground. The image that inspired this linocut came from a series of photographs I took of giraffe on the Ngamo Plains in the southern region of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

This is an original Linocut. To produce the Linocut, an image is first drawn on to paper and then transferred to a sheet of Lino. Using specialized tools and a surgeon’s scalpel, the raised sections of Lino not required are delicately cut away and removed. Lino ink is applied to the Linocut which is then placed face down on to the map and carefully compressed with a roller, transferring the ink to the paper. It is a time consuming process subject to many errors. This is a limited edition Linocut of 100. It is delivered in a tube, ready for framing.
