Linocut: SJ Electric Light Tower

SJ Electric Light Tower

SJ Electric Light Tower

These are linocut prints of the San José Electric Light Tower, a tower that spanned an intersection and provided the first electric lighting west of the Rockies. I carved this into a flexible linoleum block, which I inked by hand and “printed” by pressing it onto paper. Since they/re done one at a time there can be a lot of variation, as shown. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and enjoy a little illumination for this winter.
