Two miniature linoleum prints, technically difficult to cut. Each board measures only 5x5cm, so most lines are 1 mm thick, or less.
While I'm responsible for the cutting and printing I can't take credit for the designs as they are apparently more than 1000 years old.
Read on for more prints (patterns with these two), and the story.
Just a brief post to show you prints of my linoleum Star Tiles, version 1 to 5. There are four handmade prints on each piece of paper:
Each Star Tile measures 5x5cm and all of them are constructed from the same basic gridlines.

A little something from the "crafts" department: Paper binders decorated with different hand printed star tile patterns (Click to see large size photos):
Each binder has 28 separate linoleum prints on it, even though it may look like one big print.
