Colour Woodcuts John Platt
[Baren] Editor's Introduction
Topics covered in this book:
- Materials and methods for woodblock printmaking in the Japanese method.
- Woodblock print design considerations.
- Anyone interested in the practical aspects of woodblock printmaking in the Japanese method - whether he be a beginner or an advanced student of the craft.
An excellent 'How to' book on woodblock printmaking with the Japanese traditional techniques, as adapted by the British in the early 20th century.
Mr. Platt gives a very complete overview of the complete process of printmaking, from design considerations, through tool selection and preparation, carving, and printing.
Colour plates of Mr. Platt's work show how well he understood the possibilities of the colour woodcut, and how well he could handle the tools and materials.
Another very interesting, informative, and most useful book. Not to be missed ...
