The Politics of Against (Reduction Print)

After editioning this print, I thought I'd try to do a version of the same print using the color reduction method of multi-tone woodblock printing. The way this works is I first print the block as it was originally cut in a light gray ink, then I cut away at the block again and print on top of the gray image in a darker ink. This makes the finer details appear in gray and the broader outlines appear in black. The result is a slightly more subtle tone shift and a nicer image (in my opinion). I only managed to print one of these.
