"A small selection of intaglio prints that I have made over the last few years, including one or two which are reworked and hand-coloured impressions of far older plates which I had long thought lost. Also included are a few impressions from my ongoing suite of etched and woodcut portraits, 'Darkness Has Its Uses'.
Initiated in an unexpected and frankly undesired burst of activity in 2016, last year I gathered some of these together in a modest publication of the same name, of which the journalist Clare Henry wrote; James McDonald is a great printmaker, but as his recent book illustrates, he can also write....the best description of printmaking I have ever read.”
