This is a detailed linocut image of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman printed on to pages of the Strand from 1980. This is a limited edition, handmade linoprint.
This print is part of a set of Sherlock Holmes images, played by different actors.
This is a unique gift for bibliophiles and fans of Sherlock Holmes. Due to the nature of a linocut print and using different pages from the book no two prints can ever be the same as each other.
Linocut or linoprinting 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!
