Today we had a visit from the Swedish artist and print-maker, Lina Nordenström, who works with letterpress and in particular, artists' books. Lina has been taking part in a residency in the Red Stables Studio in St Anne's Park and returns home next week. She will be back in Dublin in November, joined by her husband & fellow artist Lars Nyberg for their exhibition in Graphic Studio Gallery. Lina & Lars built a studio in Uttersberg in Sweden, "Grafikverkstan Godsmagasinet" (GG - could be translated “Warehouse Workshop“), open since 2009, which is equipped for intaglio printmaking, dry methods and letterpress printing.
Jamie Murphy and I showed her around the press and Lina very kindly gave us two of her books in exchange for one of Jamie's prints from 'Albert Ernest and the Titanic' and one of our Ulysses Strands posters. You can see some details from Lina's books below.
