Prints to be proud of in no time at all
Linocut is a perennially popular medium for the amateur artist, as the forgiving process makes it possible for a beginner to come up with powerfully graphic results using basic equipment. Nick Morley is a seasoned expert at guiding aspiring printmakers through their first projects, and this accessible book distills his knowledge into friendly step-by-step workthroughs, liberally illustrated with clear photography and examples of Morley’s own work. A section of templates at the end makes it easy to get started with block printing, so within a couple of days the reader will find themselves growing in confidence and skill.
