Quail & Quince

Key block carved and the first rough print pulled using the ye-olde-fashioned inking and hand braying onto tracing paper method. A few days later, I jumped on a Vandercook and did a few test runs there, working out alignment issues, refining the carving, cutting down paper, and putting down the first three colors.

Good lordy, let's hope that the registration actually works out. There was a magical accidental moment due to slightly sloppy ink application, I got a split font effect for the mustardy brown yellow block, which came out surprisingly wunnerful.

And finally, with all five colors and blocks printed, we have the quail quince print complete.
