17.5 x 20.4cm, 4pp, card printed black on cream with the internal text with a landscape linocut by Jo Hincks.
Internally there is a text:
Everything has been turned into wood and shaped with an axe till it roughly resembles itself. Wooden roads, wooden colours, wooden suns, wooden pine-needles. A wooden field with wooden stoocks like sails on a sea.
K. S-R. is Karl Schmidt-Rottluff the German expressionist who formed the Die Brücke group. Late in his life he made almost exclusively landscape paintings that reflected his angular style (which looks much like the unsubtle edges of woodcuts). VG+.
