Finally finished printing Blake’s The Tyger. As those with nimble memories may recall, late last Fall I began a cut closely following this poem. Today I finished the plate and printed a healthy number.

It’s a cloudy and chilly day, so I’ll give the prints at least until Monday to dry thoroughly; then I’ll scribe the poem in.

I picked up where I left off on the tree trunk and did well, but I lost something between then and now with the stripes. Rather than keep cutting, I left the legs as they are for now. I do like the way the plant turned out, very much.
