'Astra' - A Celestial Mini-Print

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

I have a new mini-print available to buy here as a pre-release. 'Astra' will ship worldwide on 20th April 2023. The print will cost £21, plus postage.

'Per Aspera Ad Astra' means 'Through Hardship To The Stars' in Latin. It is one of my favourite adages and seems an appropriate sentiment in these times. I love the macro shot here showing the beauty of the warm gold ink and die-stamped printing process, an ancient intaglio printing technique that embosses the design from an engraved copper plate. This piece is exceptionally pretty in real life; I don't think anybody will be disappointed with it in the flesh.

Die-Stamped Gold Ink on 540 gsm Black Colourplan Paper. This mini-print measures 150mm X 105 mm (approximately 5.9 X 4.1 inches.) Edition of 150, initialled & numbered by the artist.

I will also make a new 'Gold on Midnight Blue' colourway of 'When You Are Sorrowful' available simultaneously.
