"Self Portrait" lino print by Elaine Shipp
Cetificate IV in Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft student Elaine Shipp has recently had a lino print included in an anthology of poetry published in Scotland.
"I was contacted in May by Margaret Preston (a flautist and composer from Scotland), asking me for permission to reproduce my lino-cut print, ‘Self Portrait’ that she had seen on my blog, in an anthology of poetry entitled ‘Lovelorn’ she was self publishing", said Elaine.
The blurb on the back of the book states: “Lovelorn is an accessible anthology of poetry which reflects on the up and downs (and ins and outs) of love. Each poem is poignantly illustrated by a specially selected linocut picture. The artists are from all over the world and their styles are equally diverse.”
‘Lovelorn’ was published in September by Matador, Leicestershire, ISBN 978-1780880-365 and is available through Margaret’s website (www.ceremony.uk.com).
Congratulations to Elaine on her inclusion in the book.
