    A Literary Line Up
    Original Prints by Bodenpress artists

    Twelve artists have taken their inspiration from the writings of selected authors. Bodenpress has produced literary themed exhibitions for six years.

    ’A Literary Line Up’ is a selection from each:
    2017 ‘A Journey with Greene’ ( Graham Greene)
    2018 ‘A is for Agatha’ ( Agatha Christie)
    2019 ‘A Twist on Dahl’ (Roald Dahl adult stories)
    2021 ‘The Poetics of Print’ ( John Betjeman)
    2022 ‘Woolf in Print’ ( Virginia Woolf)

    This group exhibition showcases a variety of printmaking techniques such as Polymer etching, Linocut, Collagraph, Drypoint, Screenprint and Monotype. The work is varied in style with many processes used to create original fine art prints.

    Some are unique, others are part of a small limited edition, and all are hand inked.

    Bodenpress was based in Chesham for 13 years and has now relocated to rural Tring.
