Block Print Magic is an essential guide to the techniques of linoleum block printing, including 17 captivating step-by-step projects and the works and insights of talented printmakers for inspiration and visual demonstration.

Block Print Magic is the perfect reference for a wide range of printmaking enthusiasts. The easy-to-follow illustrated instruction takes you through every step of the process, beginning with choosing and caring for tools and setting up a studio, through design essentials, carving techniques, and printing techniques. Those techniques include multi-block printing, reduction cuts, puzzle blocks, and rainbow-roll printing. Advanced carving techniques for creating textures, crosshatching, and three-dimensional shading will give you the opportunity to expand and strengthen your expertise.

Among the visually stunning projects you'll learn to create:
  • Colorful, multi-block hex sign
  • Reduction cut sunflowers print
  • One-page pocket zine from a single block
  • Fabric wall hanging embellished with embroidery
Along with author Emily Howard's own work, artist spotlights feature interviews with and examples of work by five other contemporary artists-Lili Arnold, Jen Hewett, Kelli MacConnell, Derrick Riley, and Aftyn Shah-as a means of clarifying how each technique can be used in different ways.

Block Print Magic is a must-have addition to any printmaker's bookshelf.
