Original Block Prints

A lost art… relief prints are made from blocks where the white parts of the design are hand carved away, leaving a plateau to receive the ink—which is then transferred to paper. The block is rolled in black or color ink, and then transferred to paper by pressure. The process may involve a series of overlapping prints, each hand pressed and lined up to create a specific effect. Browse Block Prints…
