I work on a Victorian Gothic hand press using limestone blocks in the traditional way. I sometimes wonder whether the enormous physical effort involved is a way of balancing the pleasure of pulling print that familiar Protestant ethic again! The medium itself requires another sort of balance: it allows you to draw in a free way and yet you must be anticipating several colours, printing one over the other a kind of premeditated spontaneity. I almost always use 3 or 4 colours and the buzz comes with superimposing one transparent colour over another.
