ARCHAEOPRINT

While completing the final print in the new series of screen prints for Boltby Scar I came up with a word for prints based on archaeological material that I think adequately describes both what they are and what inspired them. ARCHAEO – indicating an ancient time or condition, involving or denoting the study of historic remains. PRINT – to press a mark, design or impression on a surface by pressure, using a device or impression produced in ink. Together they form – ARCHAEOPRINT.
