As well as my exhibition print arriving I have also now got my hands on the final copy of my book! The gloves were back on as I unwrapped the packaging (don’t want any fingerprints!) and the final book was revealed!

The pack included A4 samples of 6 different Gicleé papers and 5 C-Type papers – I was impressed with the quality of them all and I know it’s… Continue reading Paper Sampling
