About this book

Discover the world of botanical block printing through an approachable guide that unveils a plethora of practical techniques and processes. This guide invites you to create stunning prints inspired by the natural world, all crafted by your own hands.

Recent years have seen a surge in the popularity of linocut and woodcut printmaking. People are finding joy in working with their hands again, and these methods make it easy – it's possibly the only printmaking medium you can do easily on the kitchen table at home. Botanical Block Printing is your companion on the journey of crafting relief prints from scratch, always with a botanical theme and beautifully presented in, printmaker and author, Rosanna Morris' contemporary and gentle aesthetic.

Richly photographed, the book is a practical how-to guide covering getting set up, what you need, equipment and so on, followed by a comprehensive introduction to processes and techniques. You'll even learn how to make your own botanical inks, adding a personal touch to your creations. Step-by-step projects including making block prints on both paper and fabric are included and there are interviews with fellow printmakers who specialise in natural subjects. Finished in tactile format with a sturdy Swiss binding exposing the spine and featuring coloured thread for an organic touch, it's a hands-on experience that's both durable and artistically crafted. Above all, this is a beautiful and visually inspiring book unlike any other on the market.

Projects include: Handmade paper print, Tablecloth, One-colour linocut, Paper studio folder, fabric printed table runner, two-colour prints, printing with foraged flowers, making your own pigment
