This must be the difinitive guide!,
This review is from: Learning Linocut: A Comprehensive Guide to the Art of Relief Printing Through Linocut (Paperback)
After getting nowhere with lino cutting, I put this book on my wish list and got it as a Christmas gift. Whatever your expertise in lino cutting there will be something useful here for you. The author makes no assumptions on previous experience, taking you from the very basics to fascinating advanced techniques with many example illustrations. The huge amount of useful information and step-by-step instructions means that you can pick up on anything from anywhere in the book. The hardest looking tasks are made so easy by the author. My rubbish lino cutting has turned into master works of art overnight thanks to this book.
The only minor thing I can find against it is there is a fair amount of repetition in each section, but this makes it all the more fail safe.
