Book:'The Technique of Wood Engraving' by John O'Connor
142 pages
This Edition Published By:BT Batsford Limited (hardback, 1971)
ISBN:7134 2517 2

This is a relatively short book which gives a nice introduction into wood engraving, including some of more modern techiques of the time. It gives a nice introduction on the various tools. I would like to have seen a wider variety of styles, but perhaps this is not the purpose of the book. It has some interesting comments about colour printing. An interesting read but not one that will be well thumbed and reread like some of my other books.
