Printed in a cast iron Victorian book press, by inking up a hand carved woodblock and transferring the image to paper. Printed in gold ink on stunning Sunn Hemp Madder paper from Khadi Papers;
"Traditional Islamic paper from North India made from sunn hemp fibre. Handmade on a chapri, a grass stem screen. Sheets are dried on a plaster wall and surface sized with wheat starch. The colour is applied by brush. Madder comes from the root of the rubia plant, an ancient dye from India, and the source of the pigment rose madder. After colouring the paper is burnished by rubbing on a curved block of wood with a smooth stone."
