These beautiful things were commissioned by Heather from The Inky Otter to mark the day we signed our book contract from Boydell and Brewer.  These “lexigraphs” are unique pieces of art made from letterpress wooden printing blocks dating from the mid 19th to mid 20th century.   The photographs really don’t do the lexigraphs justice, although they do give some idea of the gorgeous colour variations in the printing blocks.

To see some more examples of these unusual and fascinating works of art I can highly recommend visiting the The Inky Otter’s website here: www.theinkyotter.co.uk
