Making Woodblock Prints, Paperback Book


Woodblock printing is an ancient art form, which produces beautiful, subtle and lively pieces with just a few simple materials.

This book introduces the art, and shares technical information and ideas for those with more experience.

A wide range of exciting examples of printed woodcuts are shown along with advice on materials and tools, and a step-by-step guide to sharpening.

Techniques to achieve quality prints and perfect registration are covered too.

Drawing on the vibrant living traditions from China and Japan, it is both a technical guide and an inspiration.
