The author (See the September, 1992 issue of School Arts for his article on a new approach to stencil painting.) leads the reader through each stage in creating a woodcut from conception to matting and framing the finished print. Clarity and attention to details, along with the author's limiting his illustrations and text to the power of black-and-white prints, combine to make this book worth acquiring for schools - junior high to college - and individuals interested in this simple form of graphic reproduction. The book includes sections on historic printmaking traditions, as well as chapters on printing problems, sharpening and restoring tools, and presentation procedures. Oravez also includes a chapter on other relief printing techniques including college prints, cardboard, gesso and modeling paste prints.
