Mini Halfwood Press No. 33

Specifications: Made in 2008. Mariner Halfwood Press. Serial No. 60033. Black walnut, ipe, steel, plastic, brass.

Artist's Comment: Lynda Lanker saw the Mini at Mahaffey Fine Arts (where she has editions produced). She decided to have one for trial proofing her smaller plates. She ordered a Mini, and I made No. 33 for her. It was the first one for which I was able to make a wooden instrument box. Lynda later sold her press to Melissa Strawser.
