I made my first print ever last week (oops! last year–never published this post!)–it was a collagraph, which is where you take whatever you feel like and glue it to a substrate and run it through a printing press. I was taking a class at the Center for Book Arts taught by Maria Pisano. I was amazed at the detail maintained in the process–but I think I like the plate better than the print (the picture of the plate has disappeared somewhere). The plate looks like an abstract illustration of the Nile, and blue just was not the right color for it (edit–> the color has grown on me since then).
