A work on paper, so apply care accordingly.
My recommendation for maximum lifespan would be to keep it out of direct sunlight and/or mount in a frame with UV protect glass/plastic, hang at room temperature and without excess moisture (i.e. not in a kitchen or bathroom). But it’s your work so more importantly, ignore all that and hang somewhere you’ll enjoy it!
‘Mono’ means ‘one’, so a monoprint is a one of a kind print. A monoprint is never part of a print run.
Although you may be able to get similar-looking prints, a monoprint is done one at a time. For this monoprint process, first, you apply your image to your plate (which can be done in numerous ways). Then, paper is applied on top and it’s run through a press. The image is transferred from the plate and onto the paper. It’s similar to a painting or drawing in its uniqueness and often inappearence, but it has a very unique finish.
All works on paper are notoriously difficult to photograph accurately. The best efforts have been made to get the colours and tones in the photograph to match the product, however, colours may vary in different lights and differ from the image shown. If you would like to arrange to view the print in person, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
