About the images
These images are based on lino cut illustrations. They are hand drawn before being transferred on to linoleum then hand carved and hand printed before they are digitised. The final prints are produced as fine art Giclée* prints reproduced on a lightly textured, heavy paper. The prints are signed by Steve Goodwin.
The prints are ‘open’ (not limited to a set number of reproductions) and are printed to order.
Most images are also available as greeting cards.
Giclée is a form of very high quality printing used for fine art prints and photography. A similar process to inkjet printing, but using more colours, to a much higher standard and with greater longevity. The prints are produced on 320gsm Hahnemühle German Etching paper, a natural white uncoated paper with a light texture. It is acid-free, mould-made for fine art prints.
