Master wood engraver Barry Moser will be in conversation with author, poet and gallery owner Rich Michelson on the occasion of the new edition of Moser’s classic book "The Art of Wood Engraving & Relief Engraving," published by Brandeis University Press.
This primer on the art of wood engraving is filled with valuable knowledge including how to prepare a printing block; how to think in the medium’s properties of line, shape, and ink; and how to transfer a drawing onto a block. It also offers practical advice on which tools to use for a project and which ink works best. This highly illustrated guide to the art form features stunning examples of Moser’s art and skill to admire and inspire and will be useful for experienced and beginner engravers alike.
