  • About our prints

    All our limited edition prints are polymer gravure etchings editioned by master printmaker Simon Marsh on Somerset velvet white 300gsm paper.
    Somerset® is a world leading traditional printmaking paper, cylinder mould made from 100% cotton to high archival standards at St Cuthberts Mill in Somerset.
    St Cuthberts Mill is located on the banks of the River Axe, close to the river's source at Wookey Hole Caves. The River Axe provides a clean source of water for papermaking, naturally filtered through the limestone in the Mendip Hills. The water has the highest level of classification for cleanliness and biodiversity. No hazardous chemicals are released into the river from the papermaking process, and all materials are screened in the mill to ensure minimal environmental effect. Pulps are sourced from sustainable sources, and cotton linters are an annual crop and by-product from the textile industry. 


    All our limited edition prints have hand finished deckle (ragged) edges which are perfect for float framing.


    Every print sale supports Honeyscribe’s work with local communities
