Primitive Printing - Frottage

Flyer for Films of the Wood a film night at the Horse Hospital curated by William Fowler & Stephen Fowler. 

I made the A4 invite with a combination of frottage, lino print and photocopy.

The print on the right was made using the same print combination for London's Eidetic Band first c.d release

Frottage is a type rubbing using soft pencil - Max Ernst was famous for it. 

I constructed a paper relief of the figures seen in the prints and made a rubbing of the surface using a brass rubbing stick. 

Frottage experiments 

I found this small film about Max Ernst and his Frottage technique.  

He compiled a book of his frottages - called 'Natural Histories'
