Mark Christian

"False Idols Win Titles"

Mark Christian cut his woodblock relief board in Tucson, and then we sent it to El Paso to have it printed, by Manuel Guerra and Raul Monarrez,  at Horned Toad Prints:

Job well done!

 Update:  Manny would have preferred to print Mark's edition with a large roller.  But he did not have one then.

Later he got one from Takach Press (in Albuquerque) -- 28 inch long, 10.5 inch diameter, 60 durometer:

to take out any imperfections

with a quick drying solvent,
that "flashes" quickly
