This is an original, handmade, limited edition linocut print of Sherlock Holmes played by Basil Rathbone, printed onto a facsimilie of the 1890 newspaper "The Strand" from 1980. The Baker Street-dwelling Holmes is regarded by many as the ultimate detective, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
This is a unique gift for Sherlockian bibliophiles for any occasion.
Due to the nature of a lino cut print and the different pages of the book no two versions can ever be the same! Linocut or lino print is a method where the artist carves into lino and uses it to produce a negative picture, an impression of this can then be taken to produce the picture positive. It can be extremely difficult and frustrating as one mistake can destroy the work or leave you with an injury, the tools are extremely sharp!
The print run is a limited edition of 221(b!). The print will be fixed onto mounting board and presented within an A3 mount.
