Several weeks ago, I bought a guide to linocut printmaking. I really enjoyed the two day course I’d done earlier in the summer, and wanted something to refer to whilst I had a go at home. The lovely people of the Twittersphere helped me out when I asked for recommendations. @TinkersHill suggested I found a copy of ‘Learning Linocut’ by Susan Yeates, and although I haven’t read it all, yet, it’s really simple and nicely laid out. I had to get stuck in, though, and used a recent life drawing (from my Crystal Palace class) for inspiration.
