Linocut and Reduction Printmaking by Laura Boswell
Laura Boswell is a leading printmaker, specialising in linocut and Japanese woodblock. You may have come across Laura at one of our printmaking workshops, or perhaps you’ve seen some of her fantastic how-to videos. This new book leads us through everything we need to know to get started with linocut printmaking, or to further your practice.
This fully comprehensive book will help you through everything linocut. Part one guides you through tools and materials, from choosing cutting tools, paper and printing ink, to sharpening your tools and installing a printing press.
Part two explores design, planning and transferring your composition to lino. Part three shows the step-by-step sequences and layers used to build up a print.
