Print Title: Journey ~ in memoriam W.R.Comments: The superb block of boxwood was a gift from my blockmaker and I had saved it towards a special project such as this. The image is based on gardens in Cornwall which stretch away from formality near the house to water gardens, wild gardens and, ultimately, the sea. The boat is based on a drawing by Rembrandt. This is the third state of the block. It was printed on an 1865 Albion handpress.
