Nature Inspired Linocuts

Preorder Tatoo book by Scene360

Working from her home in Norfolk, England, Amanda Colville passionately cuts linoleum sheets to make colorful patterns and other designs. From artwork to be displayed on walls to greeting cards, she ink impresses by hand, but Colville is also known for using an old washing mangle as a printing press. The latter connecting to her choice of website and studio name, “Mangle Prints.”
