Greetings card of Eastbourne Pier in East Sussex taken from my original large linocut. This quality card measures 5″x7″ (or 127mm high by 178mm wide) and is blank inside for your own message. Card comes with white envelope and cellophane wrap.
A great card for all lovers of piers and beaches – especially the much-loved pier in Eastbourne. It would also look good framed!
Eastbourne Pier was completed in 1872. Like many piers around the country, it has suffered storm damage and various misfortunes – including a fire in 2014 – but was re-built and re-opened and still remains charming to this day. The current owner has painted the various domes on the buildings gold – which personally I like!
Linocut is a method of relief printmaking similar to woodcuts. The soft lino sheets are carved and then inked up with a roller. Paper is pressed on top of the lino to make a print – either using a mechanical press or by rubbing the back of the paper with a baren, spoon or other object.
The original print is available from Artfinder.
