Designs such as Samphire are incredibly intricate, and achieving such accuracy and attention to detail during printing is a real art. Roller block printing is perfect for the job, and allows for ever more sophisticated designs.
Firstly, the design is hand engraved onto a cylinder and carefully coated with a foam roller passing through a paint filled trough. The roller block is then rolled onto the paper to print the pattern.
Similar to flat bed block prints, the unique texture of this method is achieved by the way the roller releases the paint as it peels off the paper.
