Bookreview: "Printing by Hand" by Lena Corwin

A couple of weeks ago I ordered Lena Corwin’s wonderful book “Printing by Hand”.

Printing by Hand (by Lena Corwin)
First of all as a booklover and crafter I have to say that I love this type of binding where the book has a hardcover with spine and a “hidden” ringbinding inside: It looks beautiful and is practical as it stays open.

After the detailed “Getting ready to print” guide Lena Corwin explains the techniques of Stamping, Stenciling and Screen Printing each in a separate chapter with lots of tipps and inspiring examples.

She also covers all the materials and tools needed for printing.

The instructions are visualized with great step by step photos.

And the patterns and designs shown in the book are included in an envelope in the back of the book.

Can’t wait to get started!
