I think not. This rethink pertains to the last post. A life size reclining figure is too reminiscent of those marble commemorative things in churches. Often a whippet under the feet.

Today I’m working on a feint print taken from 47 of DB’s blocks simultaneously. There are pencil proofing marks all over to indicate more height required. (Inserts of paper and lead make up the lack of height or wonkiness.) Ellen said at the time that the marks were lovely and as a printer (and not the artist) I agreed. So I’m cutting out the marked blocks and raising them with mountboard, cork, wood etc.. A kind of pantomime of levels illustrating the trouble we went to getting them type high.

Here is a photograph of the underside of one block after we had printed from them. The paper shapes and other inserts are ‘make goods’.
