The woodcut artist's handbook : techniques and tools for relief printmaking by George A Walker( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A clearly written and meticulously illustrated reference for woodcut techniques and printmaking. The history of the woodcut goes back at least to the stone age. Working carefully with great precision, the woodcut artist carves a mirror image of a design on wood or other suitable material. Then the design is inked and pressed against paper. The technique allows the artist to create an almost unlimited number of impressions of the same work. The precision of the work and the ability of the artist to create multiple impressions allow many fine woodcut artists to create pieces at a reasonable price that an average collector can afford. The Woodcut Artist's Handbook provides the basics of this craft with a detailed analysis of the tools and the media. Artists can improve or develop considerable skill in this art by following these instructions and helpful tips. Beginners and advanced woodcutters and collectors will gain a deeper understanding of and appreciation for this craft and this art
