Typewriter Art Print, Original Cyanotype 8 x 10 inches - free shipping

* Printed by hand, not a digital print *

This artwork combines two things I love ... cyanotypes and old typewriters! My old typewriter and some text added as a fun way to tie together the subject of the image and the process to create it.

This original artwork is a hand-crafted print made by using the traditional 19th century cyanotype printmaking process using a negative transparency from my original photograph of a vintage typewriter with digitally added text "cyano-type" printed to the transparency sheet that was used to expose the print.

Print size : 8x10 inches (approx.: 20.5cm x 25.03cm). This is a standard print size for easy framing options (fits in a standard Ribba frame from Ikea).

Printed by hand on Bergger COT 160 high quality archival French art paper. This is a beautiful warm toned paper specifically made for hand-crafted photographic | printmaking processes.

The print will be signed and dated on the front in graphite pencil.

This artwork is unframed and unmatted but will include a gallery quality FSC certified backing board and will be enclosed in a clear protective premium polypropylene sleeve. This particular sleeve/bag can be reused or repurposed or recycled at a local REDCycle drop off point. Your artwork will also be sandwiched between recycled cardboard for extra protection while travelling and will be sent with tracking.

Please note, your monitor or device may show this image to appear slightly lighter or darker in shade to the original.

Info about the process to create this artwork:
The process involved a digital negative being created from the original photograph and printed onto a transparency film sheet. Solutions were mixed to create a photosensitive emulsion which was then brushed onto the watercolour paper. Once the paper was sufficiently dry, the negative was placed over the paper and placed into a contact printing frame. Following this was exposure to a UV light source and the development, rinsing and drying of the paper, resulting in a cyan-blue print of the original photographic image.
