These photos are from the current exhibition on in the Summerhall café – There Will be Light by Ade Adesina. They are so cool and even more impressive is that most of them are linocuts. After my recent attempts at lino printing I am SO impressed! The scale and detail of them is just amazing. The top picture (my favourite) is 1.8 metres by 1.1 metres, imagine if you got all that way and then made a mistake somewhere. And I don’t even know where you would get a piece of lino large enough, or a press big enough to print it!

    Check out my favorite artist, SV Medaris, who also does linocuts. She printed one 5 ft print with a steamroller. http://marketweightpress.com/blog/
