When I collected my book binding press late last year I was given this lovely embosser by Les Baynam, who runs Homeward Bound, a company specialising in book binding and printing presses.
A friend kindly cleaned it up for me and I intend to get my own stamp made for it;I don't want to be known as Dover Corporation Electricity Department! It's a fine piece of Victoriana which looks lovely in my studio.
I recently submitted work to The Cambridge Drawing Society - http://www.cambridgedrawingsociety/ - and was elected as a member. One of my lino cuts was selected for the exhibition at the Guildhall in Cambridge which ended last Saturday. It was an interesting exhibition which made the news due a painting being stolen at the private view!! Luckily the police recovered it! My print wasn't sold but lots were, which seems to be unusual at the moment. Being a member means that next year I can enter 4 works and they run another exhibition in the Autumn.
