Bits Nips Pits - Riso Print


Out of stock

'Bits, Nips, Pits' by paper-cut artist and cold water swimmer, Anna Brones. The phrase captures the process of shock to the body parts that is inevitably unavoidable when entering cold water. 

Behind the Print.

Gilly McArthur spoke to American based writer and fellow cold water swimmer Anna Brones for an interview Anna was writing for the American magazine “Outside”.

On that call, Gilly mentioned a phrase “Bits, Nips, Pits”.

Anna, a talented artist and paper cutter was quite tickled by the expression and a week later had sent Gilly this image she had created as a gift.

And so behold this print was born!

With Anna’s permission, Gilly collaborated with her friend Ian at National Park Print Shop to print this design to raise money for LGBTQIA+ charities.

For each of these prints sold, 25% of the price of the print will be donated to charity - this donation will be split between two fantastic charities: the Albert Kennedy Trust and Stonewall.

Risograph Printed in the Lake District

Printed on 170gsm white paper, made from recycled coffee cups. Available sizes:

A3 - paper size 29.7cm x 42cm, £25

A4 - paper size 21cm x 29.7cm, £15

These prints are printed in Riso, a process where layers of ink colour are applied via a rolling drum and stencils.  The process means that each print has little deviations and quirks making each print one-of-a-kind and unique to you. 

The print is available in two colour-ways: a glorious rainbow edition (printed from just three ink layers of vivid pink, aqua and yellow) and a blue and aqua ink edition.

Prints are sold unframed. However, you can add a frame to your order. Select an A4 or A3 print and the framing options will automagically appear.
