Thank you, Sabrina. One of my quarantine projects has been to resurrect my printmaking.

Thank you, David; it is only possible with good equipment. When I started to make prints I got really frustrated because I had cheap tools. Now I use Pfeil carving tools (from Switzerland - I think they are originally made for wood carving and they are not expensive either, but so much better then the Brause set I used before) and "Soft cut" plates instead of linoleum for carving as I am rather weak. For the finest lines I use the finest tool you can get from Pfeil, I forgot the size and it is not written on it (it says 11 but I don't know what that means).

How do you get those fine lines? I'm amazed...

Thank you all. :)

Special thanks to Richard, I had to smile about your charming way of critic in your words. In fact, I never really understood the original idea of mail art, maybe because I did not understand what is art and never was part of the (institutional) arts, whatsoever; you can't criticize something you don't know. Is it art what I do? Maybe it is called illustration? I am glad I don't need to know the terms to do it. :)

14.04.20 Dare  Sabrina S , ...this is not "mail art". This is "Art". When I saw this posted a day or so ago in these pages I thought it was just another lazy mail artist ("Yeah,-look-who's-talking"!) posting still yet another image from the cultured past.---but obviously I was wrong---- yes, of course, there are no rules in mail art, just the ones the mail artist chooses. Fine artists are allowed to shine as well---so it qualifies. SinCelery, Richard Canard .........Post Scriptum: Look, I'm just trying to support Heide M.'s statement.
