Active and passive sides of Pram Halfwood Press No. 114

Ritchie's comment: Andrew saw the Halfwood Presses online andconsidered several models, then settled on the Pram as being a good one to start his work in intaglio printmaking. He commented that the Halfwood line might be well-received in Japan, where he lives and works. This encouraged me to try to expand our effort toward getting more Halfwood Presses to Japan, and we Skyped on this several times he also suggested we find ways to incorporate printmaking in English teaching methods in Japan .
