The Woodcut Artist's Handbook

George A. Walker has a new book out: The Woodcut Artist's Handbook: Techniques and Tools for Relief Printmaking (Firefly Books). The Handbook is for both beginners and more experienced folks, with the added benefit of presenting an array of contemporary woodcuts and wood engravings, so even armchair artists can enjoy. The book launch will be on Wednesday, September 14 at David Mirvish Books in Toronto. If you would like to attend the book launch, e-mail George Walker at
