This is an original print pulled from a rubber engraving, one of twenty-six illustrations made for a version of 'Strike Pay' by D H Lawrence, published in 2018. The first purpose was to provide images to be reproduced in the book, so only a few prints were pulled from each engraving. Fourteen of the books' original illustrations are now offered for sale. Each print is numbered alongside the edition size and also signed with the year. The titles of each were drawn from Lawrence's text. In the story the central character, Ephraim Wharmby, is all in after a very difficult day. His wife comes to him and asks, "Shall y'ave your dinner warmed up?" and he answers, "Ay".
