MO WAX JAZZ HIP JAP TEAR SHEET

Single colour offset litho tear sheet from Straight No Chaser Magazine. The issue this came from is pretty hard to come by. And of course you don't want to tear it from your mag if you have one! so heres a chance to frame one for the wall. KICKS MORE FUNK THAN A SHAOLIN MONK!

• 1 Colour Litho Print • Matt Coated Paper • 150 gsm Approx

Size 219mm (W) x 270mm (H)

MO WAX VINYL ETCHING

Very rare indeed! This is the last one I have. I produced these circular prints for the 21st Year Anniversary of Mo Wax. The edition looked quite different to these artists proofs. The process was very complex first I had a Bakelite 12" disc routed with the Mo Wax logo. The record was then inked and put through an etching press. The final edition was produced rolling the ink onto the disc. However I produced a dozen or so firstly pushing ink into the grooves and then wiping and cleaning similar to an etching or Aquatint. As a result each print was totally unique and as tie went on the Bakerlite began to crack at the edges. This print is a true original.

• Etching • Hand Made Cotton Rag • 300 gsm • One Off / Signed • Size 350mm Diameter
