  • About this print

    The 'Spreading Bellflower (Campanula Patula)'

    - Very local in Southern Britain with concentration along the Welsh border.
    - The main difference between the Spreading Bellflower and other bellflowers is that the petals in the bell are spread out and more pointed, it is this that gives the species its common name.
    - It is becoming increasingly rare due to changes in woodland management, such as the end of coppicing(a traditional woodland management technique that involves felling trees at their base to create a 'stool' where new shoots will grow)and an increased use of herbicides.

    This print is a combination of Japanese woodcut, etching and drypoint, printed on Kozo then mounted on Somerset satin white paper.

  • Endless Forms, Most Beautiful

    A new bestiary and herbarium for at risk species by artists from Northern Print.

    “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to support visits, new printmaking and school’s programme for this project.

    Northern Print artists bring together traditional printmaking and the natural world with a series of new prints highlighting the diversity of species that are categorised as ‘at risk’.

    The ‘endless forms’ include marine life; plants; birds; insects and mammals with many familiar and much-loved species as well as less known and intriguing creatures that have captured the imagination and hearts of Northern Print’s artists.

    This exhibition of 45 new prints has been made following a series of visits to our region’s natural history collections and habitats and represents the tiniest tip of the iceberg of our natural world under threat.

    The artwork includes a range of approaches and printmaking processes – including heritage craft skills also deemed at risk including letterpress and mould-made papers
