April Vollmer Publishes "Japanese Woodblock Printing Workshop"

Artist and printmaker April Vollmer, one of the most distinguished Japanese woodblock printing practitioners and instructors in the West, has just published Japanese Woodblock Printing Workshop, a comprehensive guide to this age-old art form.

Revered for its non-toxicity, use of handmade materials, Japanese woodblock printing (mokuhanga) is also easily employed with other printmaking techniques.

A practical and inspirational guide to the discipline, Japanese Woodblock Printing Workshop combines April’s comprehensive knowledge of the Japanese printmaking practice and tradition with instruction. 


Examples of a diverse array of prints by leading contemporary artists in the field, as well as April’s own work are featured in the book. aprilvollmer.com
