New technology to mimic the old. Printing experiments have been a success with laser engraved and hand cut relief prints applied in layers. Today the parts will be pulled together into their final form encased in an embroidered map much darker than any other I’ve done.
The beginnings of another work, the lovely Kate (not me, another lovely Kate) returned from Vietnam with an embroidery for me.

As yet undecided on the contents I only know that I want to contextualise it with the book begun in Amsterdam focused on the sea, trade and colonisation.
