Review by Library Journal Reviews

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. [Page 72]. (c) Copyright 2011.
