Linocut prints featured in Beauty of the Beast book

Updated: Oct 14

I’m delighted that FIVE of my linocut prints will feature in Mascot Media’s forthcoming book, ‘Beauty of the Beast.’

The book features 450 original prints of 36 British mammal species by 78 UK-based artists. British mammals include badgers, bats, dormice, foxes, hedgehogs, hares and otters.


The book will be published by the end of October 2022. See a selection of sample pages and pre-order from mid-October on the Mascot Media website.

Below are five of my lino prints that are featured in the book.


The original linocut prints can be purchased through my online shop.

All my linocut prints are hand-printed using oil-based inks onto acid-free paper.

About the author

Michelle Hughes is a North Yorkshire linocut artist. Much of her work depicts the Yorkshire landscape and Yorkshire coast, including the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.


Michelle loves exploring the British countryside by bike or on foot, camera in hand, capturing ideas for her next linocut prints. Back in her garden studio, Michelle creates simple but stylised silhouettes based on her photographs, and hand carves these shapes into lino. She hand prints with an etching press, using oil-based inks to create tonal blocks of colour. Michelle’s original linocut prints are limited editions.
