I SEE THE IMAGE

Check out this short film about the artist William Johnstone creating prints to illustrate a book of poetry! The film, shot in wonderfully grainy 16mm, was made in 1981 and offers an intriguing glimpse into the past. Johnstone employs lithographic techniques to make his prints, working alongside Kenneth Duffy, the very first director of Edinburgh Printmakers.
