Linocut for artists & designers || Nick Morley

The literature of printmaking tends to be quite small and, perhaps inevitably, specialised. Often, a degree of heavy or expensive equipment is necessary, or toxic chemicals involved, taking it beyond the realm of the casual practitioner.

While this is by no means a beginner’s guide, it does include some fairly simple methods that do not require great outlay and the explanations are sufficiently clear that the amateur need not feel overawed.

That said, this is a book mainly aimed at those who want to take linocut printmaking seriously and there is plenty of information that includes presentation, selling and exhibiting as well as equipment and working methods. It’s extensively illustrated and particularly useful are the features on a number of practitioners worldwide, showcasing an excellent variety of work and styles.
