Library Journal Review

Crafters curious about hand printing but intimidated by all the options will appreciate Jolliffe's accessible collection. Beginning with basic projects that use stamps carved from potatoes, paper stencils, and commercially available wooden stamps and proceeding to advanced techniques such as screen printing, Jolliffe walks crafters step-by-step through the process of hand printing on both fabric and paper. Each project includes clear directions and tips, and some of the more complex projects include step-by-step photographs along with the directions. This is a good basic introduction to hand printing, especially for beginners looking for an accessible, inexpensive way to get started. (c) Copyright 2011.
