    1. It's lovely - I especially like the narration - but as you say very patronising! Even all these years later, I found inspiration in it and will be doing a bit of lino cutting as a result, assuming of course, I can manage the design bit. I expect I'll have to practise a bit first :))

    1. Yes indeed it is the one you posted, so thank you for that! It led me to the Facebook page where I found so many interesting things and useful information....loads of videos to watch and share about printing ...so it will be a source of inspiration for a while I've no doubt!
