This late 2014 edition has an interesting back story. At auction Michael purchased a screenprint of the same name that he and his father had printed back in 1982. It had faded after being hung in bright sunlight for 32 years but he felt that it was a print well worth re-printing. He told us “it has been a struggle remembering how Dad & I made it as there are several colour blends in the print, a technique that requries great skill from the printer. A colour blend, or blend of colours requires hands on printing, and even so there are subtle variations between the prints which enhance this print edition”.
