Comments or notes: 

This series was inspired by a photograph of Japanese banners but also reflects BR's interest in heraldry. Students at Yeovil School of Art were taught Heraldry by Elsie K. Köhler, a stalwart of YSA. Eight lino blocks were printed in different combinations of red and black to form a series of ten separate prints (P031-040).
