This one gave my 97 year old assistant and me a run for our money to start with, but it eventually settled down as we were running low on paper. The yellow was silkscreened on first, while the key image was a two block lino which had to be positioned face-down of course over the background. This is usually reasonably straight forward, but the small borders meant it was hard to trap the paper over the inked up block. My 97 year old assistant, you ask? My mother was rushed in from the sunny verandah in Braidwood, as I needed an extra pair of hands to lay this paper down each time.
