Capture the beautiful natural world with printmaking linocut blocks from Inky Dog Studio's Jane Spink. Learn to make your own linocut blocks of the world all around you.

Jane Spink, founder of dynamic and successful Inky Dog Studio, shares her working process for creating her stunning prints inspired by the natural world. Be taken through the initial sketches and inspirational photos, explore different linocut 'doodles' to discover your favourite marks to carve, then ultimately carve the final design onto a block.

Following an inspirational chapter and demo exercise on key linocut techniques, Jane guides you through 10 striking projects, each adding useful skills as you proceed. In this way, you build and develop your carving and printing skills at your own pace, while creating a remarkable work of art. Learn to carve birds, flowers, leaves and more, and simultaneously see how to make negative images, incorporate different colours and make complex versions.

From ready-to-use templates for all the projects, you can start making your own print blocks, and learn tips for developing the skills to create your own.

This is a gorgeous, highly visually intuitive how-to book that breaks away from the dry step-by-step guide, and will be a springboard for you to set out on, or advance further along, your own nature-inspired linocut journey.
