Whitby Abbey at night lino print

Whitby Abbey lino print:
Bedtime Stories

This well known landmark, Whitby Abbey, is steeped in myth, legend and rich history – a place of epic stories if ever there was one – while below it, ordinary everyday, yet epic in their way, stories are told and unfold.

A limited edition lino print (relief print) with a rich texture and strong dark colour scheme, evoking a time of day when stories are read before bed. Four individual plates were cut for this original lino print, of this evocative view of Whitby Abbey from across the harbour. Every print in this limited edition has character – an intrinsic quality of art created by hand (as opposed to computer), and much appreciated by original print collectors.
