Linocut book


The Greatest Bicycle Race Ever - handprinted linocut concertina book

A simple concertina book about some animals who have a bicycle race that goes wrong. Join the loveable cast of:

  • penguin (who is a little bit brave and foolhardy)

  • shark (terrified of everything and on stabilisers)

  • owl (can’t see anything) he

  • Wheel dog (very very competitive)

They all start the race but do they finish? You, the reader, decides!

It was made with hand-carved linocut stamps which were handprinted onto recycled cartridge paper. The covers are made from heavy cotton rag paper.

It is an A5 size book (420 x 594 mm) with four double pages to pull out concertina style. Can be read or displayed (or both)

I have currently printed 3 copies in this format.
