Lady of Letters, Part III

The Russian word Life was 
printed on many of the 
postcards that I mailed.

Life postcard by Suzanne Coley
I really like working with 
lithographs and silkscreens,
however with this project,
I didn't have a lot of space
or time for those processes.

With linoleum and wood,
I can take the little blocks
everywhere, cut anywhere,
and print anytime.

My handwriting and some cuts
I  began the text
by writing the
mirror images of
 Russian and German words
on the linoleum block.

The final plate with red Charbonnel ink
I removed all of the background,
leaving only the lettering.
