Bee wood engraving

Broomley Bee Project have bee hives in the gardens at Cherryburn and when I found out they were having a stand at the Northumberland County Show in 2015, I offered to create a wood engraving which I then made into cards which they could sell to raise funds. It was a good reason to do a print run on the Albion at Cherryburn. They ordered 600 cards. Time served printers could  do up to 3600 pages a day. So I thought I would be done in no time. It took me 4 days! and that was with help. It was great fun and also gave me an opportunity to typeset for the first time.
