Written by renowned Australian Mokuhanga artist Terry McKenna, this book constitutes the first extensive explanation that we are aware of outlining the fundamentals of woodblock printing in English.
 
Terry currently resides in Karuizawa, conducting classes and residential study courses. Since completing his studies under Kyoto-based Mokuhanga master Richard Steiner, he has taught extensively in Japan, in Australia and internationally.
 
This book's methodical approach reflects a deep understanding of the craft presented by an accomplished teacher. Terry's experience and passion in teaching this art form permeates every page, and it has deepened our understanding of the topic profoundly. For anyone interested in traditional Japanese art, Japanese carving and aesthetics, and Japanese carving tool selection and application, this is required reading. 
 
This book covers the fundamentals of Japanese woodblock printing. Terry's second book builds on this first one, and we hope to also stock it soon.
