Embark on a journey into the enchanting realm of botanical block printing with this accessible guide, revealing an array of practical techniques and processes. Unleash your creativity and craft beautiful prints inspired by the wonders of nature, all made with your own hands.

In recent times, there has been a resurgence in the popularity of linocut and woodcut printmaking. People are rediscovering the satisfaction of manual work, and these methods offer simplicity – perhaps the only printmaking medium that can be easily done at your kitchen table.

Botanical Block Printing accompanies you on the journey of creating relief prints from scratch, always with a botanical theme and presented in the contemporary and gentle aesthetic of printmaker and author, Rosanna Morris.

With captivating photography, this book serves as a practical guide covering setup, essential tools and materials, followed by a comprehensive introduction to techniques and processes. You'll even explore the art of making your own botanical inks, infusing your creations with a personal touch.

Step-by-step projects encompass block printing on paper and fabric, complemented by interviews with fellow printmakers specialising in natural themes. Bound in a tactile format with a sturdy Swiss binding that reveals the spine and adorned with coloured thread for an organic touch, it offers a durable and artistically crafted experience.

Above all, this book is a visual delight!

What you'll find inside the book:

  • Tips about tools & materials
  • Ideas for getting started and drawing techniques
  • How to transfer to a block.
