The block has closed up with use and/or swelling. It was the first block I carved with the 1mm Japanese v-cut, so I was rather tentative. I've needed to go back in and recarve most of it. This is 2.5 hours work. I intend to really lighten it up.
This is a faux-print -- a grey-scale scan of the block to see how it'll look printed. I didn't bother to flip the image. Here's the image reversed.
