This is a set of 6 hand printed linocuts illustrating the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It would make a lovely present for a child, something which could be handed down through the family.

The colour and design of these linocuts reflect traditional, vintage woodcuts, in keeping with the history of this much loved story. The beautiful lettering is produced using letterpress font from the 1930s. A friend’s little girl was the model for Goldilocks and I love her impish expression while tucking into the bears’ porridge. Seeing the bears in very human situations makes me laugh.

The printed area is 18cm x 15cm and the paper is 29cm x 21cm. It is printed in brown and red oil based ink onto a fawn paper. It is presented in a hand silk screen printed folio.  This is a very limited edition print of 6.

All of my linocut prints turn out slightly differently – depending on where the linocut and letterpress font is placed on the paper, how much ink is rolled on, and how much pressure is used to transfer the ink from the linocut onto the paper. This colourway is one of an edition of 6 prints, and each print is number, titled and signed, all in pencil.
