Techniques and Tool for Relief Printmaking
by George A. Walker

George Walker, an award-winning engraver, has written an enthusiastic guide to relief printmaking, or what he calls "making an impression on paper, both figuratively and literally." His own beginnings as a woodcut artist began with the recognition that the art wasn�t dependent upon words, and could make a lasting, almost visceral impression across cultures using very simple tools. The power in the many striking images included in the book back this up. Walker shows you how to choose the right block for cutting and engraving; how to select, use and sharpen your tools; get the best results from pen and inks; how to print in black and white and in color; and how to fix mistakes. With a tool list, glossary, and gallery of woodcut artistry. Softcover. 7" x 10". 168 pages.

"George�s enthusiasm for the medium is very infectious. A tour de force that would well usher in a whole new 19th century." - Ralph Steadman

"A must for all people wishing to take up the challenges and rewards of these ancient methods of printmaking."- Michael McCurdy
