Format: Paperback
A very good and detailed book on the subject. Lots of practical advice. I like the way that the actual dimensions of reproduced prints are given, this allows you to work out how much detail has been cut, something that is lacking in the book by Hayward.

I bought this book in order to learn about the different tools and methods for a wood engraving course I have now completed. It gives clear and very helpful advice on tools methods etc. Diagrams of the tools were particularly good as before the course many online descriptions were quite vague. I am sure this will prove to be a good reference book for my relief printing in the future.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book is very good, and gives me - just above beginner level and explanation for things that most printmakers take for granted. It also refers to other texts in the very first pages - the free ones.

But it is the first time I can actually see images properly on my first generation Kindle. Every other text was rubbish, from Conan Doyle's biography to J Bate's book on John Clare. It's one of the most frustrating things about Kindle, images aren't there at all, or are so miniaturised that they are not visible.

Gives fantastic advice on how to start making those cuts - definitely encouraging.
