Bethlehem: Printing Second State Block
Early last week I cut the index finger of my left hand rather badly. I'm quite careful when handling woodcut tools, but I'm very cavalier about x-acto knives. Holy cow, those things are sharp! I was cutting a mat. More proof that matting and framing should be left to the professionals.
Anyway, my finger is on the mend and I was able to fit in a printing session on Saturday. Above is the next layer on the Bethlehem print. I've left the full border visible so you can see the little notches I've cut in the paper for registration.
I think this is all I need to print with this state of the block, so it's time to carve again for the next reduction.
