An original linocut, designed, carved on linoleum, individually inked with highly-pegmened ink in earthy dark green and handprinted on premium heavyweight paper (100% cotton rag Somerset paper, manufactured in the UK). After the ink dried, I embellished it with watercolour and 23ct gold leaf. An illustration of a fairy tale story by Hans Christian Andersen, published in 1835 (a first in the series of illustrations of his books, which I was very fond of as a child) 

Limited varied edition of 50 - please see the other listing for another version, without watercolour and gold leaf.

Because the image is handprinted and embellished by hand, there may be slight variations in tone and colour.
