Reviews

"Printmaking is an accessible craft that requires little initial investment to achieve eye-catching results. Yvonne and Rebecca Drury, who operate MissPrint, a London-based fabric-printing business, introduce the ins and outs of printmaking in this...Colorful, charming book. A lot of territory is covered, from simple potato printing to screen printing, and the directions for each type of printing are brief and basic; this is best for beginners. The focus on finding inspiration in the world around you is a nice touch, and beginning and experienced printers will appreciate the beauty of the designs." - Library Journal "I immediately wanted to devour the whole thing and start printing!" - Canadian Living Blog "I was happy to see that every single technique described could be applied to paper. The authors even provide seven sample patterns that you can copy and cut out for printing and pattern-making." - Seth Apter, The Altered Page
