Farlows Strip & Mend Print
Special Price £29.00 Regular Price £75.00
Farlows Strip & Mend Print is a quirky and nostalgic limited-edition letterpress artwork.
They are hand-printed using a vintage proofing press and composed entirely of salvaged wood and metal printers type combined with antique advertising prints blocks - most well over 100 years old.
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

After graduating from Lincoln University in 1996, Russell went onto become a member of the NZ Professional Fishing Guides himself, working for Lake Rotoroa Lodge and later for the Owen River Lodge.
