How would I mount my prints?

These four prints are going to be on show atWater Street Galleryin Todmorden as part of its ‘A Modern Bestiary’ exhibition “[e]xploring the animal kingdom, real and imagined, through the eyes of artists who have a personal and contemporary take on this fascinating genre.”

If you’re in the area, do go and see them in person to appreciate all the fine detail and textural marks a computer monitor can’t show you.

That meant mounting them, so I’m finally able to share how I would mount my prints.

I really like black core mount board with my black prints. The black reveal really sets off the printing and keeps your eye in the picture plane.

Once mounted, I also like to pop these in a thin profile black frame because black goes with everything.

Of course, these are just my preference so feel free to go as wild or plain as you like with your choice of mount and frame–you do you!–but the latent graphic designer in me just loves that graphic black core.
