Linocut for Artists and Designers, the book I have been writing, is available to pre-order now, I’m delighted to announce! After three years of hard work, more than ten days of photo shoots with Hazeleigh Prebble and many sessions with my designer, Ian Youngs, I have received the first advance copy! It looks brilliant and I am very happy and relieved to finally see it in print (thank you to Rachel Allen at Crowood Press for sticking with me!)
The main shipment is currently on a boat somewhere between Malaysia and the UK and is due to arrive around 10th June. I will send out your order as soon as the books arrive, along with an exclusive Linocutboy bookplate.
