May, David Gentleman

May is a boxwood engraving, originally commissioned by the Oxford University Press and reproduced as an illustration in their edition of John Clare’s he Shepherd’s Calendar, published in 1964. It is here printed directly from the block in an edition of 500 copies on dampened vélin d’Aches paper. The printing has been undertaken on a hand press by Ian Mortimer at I.M. Imprimit.

The edition is sold out, but there is very limited stock of signed but un-numbered prints.
