Description The Woodcut Artist&#39 by s Handbook

The history of the woodcut goes back to the stone age. The woodcut artist carves a mirror image of a design onto wood or lino- then the design is inked and pressed against paper. The precision of the work and the ability to create multiple impressions allow many fine woodcut artists to create pieces at a reasonable price that an average collector can afford. This practical handbook is ideal for beginner and advanced woodcut artists. In addition to being an illustrated manual of instruction, the book showcases a gallery of woodcuts and wood engravings by a broad spectrum of artists working in both traditional and contemporary styles. The topics included are: selecting wood, choosing the right tools, wood engraving tools, sharpening your tools, drawing on the block, cutting the block, holding the tools, repairing end-grain blocks, paper, ink, and printing. This is clearly written and meticulously illustrated for woodcut techniques and printmaking. The target market includes: woodworkers, artists, printmakers, designers, collectors.
