The Wildlife Series
This engraving shows a pair of bitterns, a rare and endangered
bird that inhabits my home region of East Anglia. They are
very reclusive so I made the bird on the nest well camoflaged
and difficult to spot. This engraving was made for
"The Millenium Ark". This is a project involving 26 members
of the Society of Wood engravers, each contributing an image.
The final print is stunning and can be seen here (click).
Copies are still available from the S.W.E., priced at £280.
I do not have the block for this print at the moment.
I have a few copies available and the rest will be printed
when the block is returned to me. Here is an enlarged version:
Image size: 60 x 65 mm
Engraved on a boxwood block and printed by
the artist in an edition of 100 copies on Zerkall
paper using a Vandercook proof press.
