Relief prints can be made using a variety of material. Linoleum, wood, and rubber blocks are most often used. Linoleum is much easier to cut than wood. For this reason, linoleum is preferred among beginning printmakers - although many professionals also prefer linoleum. Linoleum allows the printmaker to easily carve curved lines and is able to accept impressions from sharp objects. Wood can also be used to produce a relief print. Although more difficult to carve, wood is much stronger than linoleum

The simplest form of relief printing is rubber stamping, and that's familiar to all crafters. But, the technique is far more versatile than that. And, bestselling author Gwen Diehn is just the person to lead us from the familiar to the adventurous. For those of us with printer's block, there's a terrific section on developing a design-getting visual ideas from casual doodles, nature tracings, photographs, and found objects. Then come the materials, tools, and techniques--making eraser prints, carving a linoleum block, making a woodcut, even building block out of polymer clay. And, because designs are even more fun on objects than framed on the wall, all of the prints appear on functional things: wrapping paper and note cards, book covers, a calendar, a poster, a T-shirt, even a lampshade. Relief prints have a classic, almost folk art look that is universally appealing. With this informative introduction, crafters and beginning artists alike can create handsome designs and well-decorated objects.

Yet the guide to using wood to produce amazing print blocks, with imagery from those made in the past, encourages an artist to use this media. The beautiful projects, tools needed, step-by-step instructions gave the book a 5-star ranking. There is even a project that shows the steps in simple book-making. You won't be disappointed in this book on printmaking/stamping, particularly in the modern frenzy in multi-media artwork.

Never took a printmaking class in college...I've been carving erasers and wondering about this new world of relief printing. This book is wonderful.
Not too much information on complicated techniques. Enough info to have me working on new ideas. If you're beyond the commercial rubber stamps and/or are an artist hoping to incorporate printed images into
multimedia work...buy this book! Great reference! It'll fill in the blanks for those who have an art education but no basic printmaking.
