Printing at scale is so interesting. In fact, scale in printmaking is pretty fascinating as you’re limited in an upward direction with paper / material sizes and in a downward one with the eventual inability to actually carve at that small size. I find the crossover has potential too - ie making small prints and stitching them together to make a big one. There’s a technique which I’ll post about some other time where you sketch, then cut and rearrange pieces so as to make a repeating pattern. It’s kind of magic.

Anyway. Here’s a really big print project. The title of the post is also total genius :-)
