This is a limited edition drypoint print. Alsion uses a perspex 'plate' into which she engraves the outline of the image using a special tool. To produce one print the plate is then inked-up in the same way as an etching:

Firstly by spreading thick black printing ink onto the surface of the plate, ensuring that the ink penetrates into the lines. The plate is then placed on the printing press and 300gsm Somerset paper placed on top. It is then rolled through the press, which transfers the ink onto the paper.

The plate can produce about ten impressions. Once the ink has dried, Alison adds watercolour then signs and editions the finished prints.
