Woodblock.com 10th Anniversary Celebration

The Quiz (Part One)

There are six questions, one related to each of the major print projects I have created in recent years. All the information needed to answer the six questions can be found on the sections of my website under the domain [woodblock.com], and with a little bit of help from Google, you should be able to extract it without too much trouble! (The questions are not 'tricky', and it should not take very long to find the answers; the idea behind all this is just to get people familiar with a bit of my work ...)
