From 2012 to 2013, artists Michael Bell and Menno Fahl posted numerous parcels of wood blocks to one
another from their respective hometowns of Newcastle and Berlin. Each artist hand-carved an image in response to the other. These woodblocks travelled between the two countries many times before a satisfactory result was decided upon. Some woodblocks journeyed over 65,000km before being finally printed!
