Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Block printing—the technique of carving a design into wood or linoleum to create individual prints—has been used for centuries by artists around the world. Allison (editor, Basic Jewelry Making) includes art by Robert Craig and photographs from Alan Wycheck in this slim yet informative volume. Proceeding step-by-step from selection of tools, blocks, and paper through carving, inking, and printing, the contributors make block printing seem accessible to all artists. This isn't a comprehensive work, but novices will find the clear directions, most with multiple photographs, useful as they experiment with printmaking.

    Very good, clear "How to" for beginners.

    I had not done anything with block printing for years (50 plus!) and found this book to be just what I needed to show me the basic techniques for block printing. It is very well organized and illustrated. I've been using it for my first attempts and it also gives a good list of tools and sources of materials. Overall... very good value.
