These prints are the first I’ve made from unmounted lino. When I bought the stuff last week, I noticed it was slightly warped, but I thought a day or so of pressing would flatten it.  Nope. I cut and pressed it unmounted, and didn’t notice any difference in result. Unfortunately, the paper that provided the best print bled the pen ink! Here you see the pencil draft (made from the second-best print):

Pencil draft, 9.5" x 6.5"

Pencil draft, 9.5" x 6.5"

These are the final prints
