Ilkley white Wells is a limited edition architectural print by Philippa Thomas. The tiny scale of the image gives a sense of preciousness to the subject matter.

The wood engraving is taken from a drawing of the White Wells on the edge of Ilkley Moor. The trees were towering over small white house and I was inspired by the defiance of both, set against the empty moorland beyond. I wanted to capture and render this in a small image. Traditionally wood engravers such as Thomas Bewick used this medium to make small works of art that could be printed hundreds of time, they were often small and very detailed as they are made using the end-grain of a piece of box wood or fruit wood.

Size: H:21 cm x W:29.7 cm
