Title: Bicycling for Ladies (2003)

Artist: Amy Redmond

Size: 11 x 14 inches

A day exploring in the library led me to the 1896 book Bicycling for Ladies by M.E. Ward — and it became the inspiration for this print. The image was hand-carved in linoleum and the text was set in metal and wood type.

Printed on Magnani Pescia, a 100% cotton paper, at the School of Visual Concepts using a Vandercook 4 press.
