Linocut and Reduction Printmaking: Design and Techniques
by Laura Boswell
Divided into three parts: 1) a practical guide to tools and materials, 2) developing an initial idea into a finished design and 3) step-by-step sequences to creating eight reduction prints. Based on her wealth of experience as a printmaker and teacher, Boswell's unique book breaks down the process of making reduction prints in a way that is easy to understand and follow. Over 300 illustrations are used to illustrate technique and show examples. No other book compares. Inspiring and useful for woodcut as well as linocut artists.
Laura Boswell specializes in linocut, woodcut and Japanese woodblock printmaking. She trained in the U.K. and Japan and her work is inspired by Japanese style and design. She is an elected member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers.
