Farlows Strip & Mend Print is based on a Victorian 'Play Bill' style poster.
This print uses a medley of old blocks from numerous manufacturers, including a pre-1888 Hardy's dryfly block illustrating the 'jam knot'. This print block was salvaged from the basement of one of NZ's oldest tackle shops (I had long hoped to find a dry fly block and drove over 1000km after a tip-off). Follow the instructions, including remembering to mutter 'god save the queen' as you pause before you strike and you'll be assured success.
- It is printed on 270gsm Recycled Card, Rubber Ink, signed and numbered edition of 60
- Size: 232mm x 450mm
