Ace lino-cutter Alan Figg has designed a Christmas Card for print every year since 1962 . This is a chance to see these designs and prints show-casing Alan’s mastery of the process. There are brief flirtations with designing for line blocks, etchings and mezzotints before returning to his proven media of relief printing. As his Christmas list began to expand it became impractical to print by hand. Much larger linoblocks were used to proof the initial design. These were then reduced in size, coloured digitally and printed commercially.
The studio has also benefitted from the sale of these prints as Alan has generously donated cards for our Christmas Sales over the years.
