A House in the Woods - my latest book

Concertina book - inspired by a dolls' house in the William Morris galleries at the V&A. Four etchings (hard ground and sugar lift) with Chine-collé, and monoprint of trees at the back.

Lukas in the making (sugar lift etching no ii)

 ...and this is the process. I painted with Camp (chicory coffee) solution on the etching plate (it acts as a resist), then covered it in straw hat varnish, submerged the plate in warm water and waited for it to lift. Several layers of Aquatint followed. The image needed more definition so I added more Aquatint later and scraped some of it back (see proofs above).
