The blocks for this print were carved with a jigsaw, a technique which allows for quick carving but presents challenges with the actual printing- as all of the blocks need to be inked and printed simultaneously. As a result, Binnie's jigsaw prints were produced in comparatively small editions of 20 impressions.
