Latest lino cut nearly ready for printing

Phew. After 15 long hours of careful cutting my latest lino plate is nearly ready for printing. This is a reworking of an old idea. The first version was in 4 or 5 colours and a bit too big for my press so the inking wasn't as even as I would have liked (see it here). So I've redesigned it for a one colour print.
Just as I was ready to print I discovered I had ordered the wrong paper. I prefer a nice crisp white Zerkall printing paper but I'd order some Hahnemule as an experiment. Its a much softer and creamier paper so I might try it with a rich dark brown ink rather than the black I had intended. More Zerkall is on order so there will be a black & white version too.
