1. There was an exhibition of etchings in the foyer to the theatre last night, and it made me remember how much I love printmaking. I began to dream again of the ‘print room’ that could be should we be lucky enough to get the Stratton Audley house, and if I was able to buy myself an intaglio press. I’ve also begun to see more clearlythe kind of lino/woodcut illustrations that I would like to have to accompany my novel.

2. Emma and I have had a nice walk in the snow at Stowe, and discuss, amongst other things, my novel, and printmaking. I’m now fired up with a desire to get myself equipped and get back to the inky stuff! 😉
