Inside weather.

We´re planning some hand printing and reading this (old swedish) book "Trycka för hand".

Lena Corwins book, Printing by Hand is probably a very good alternative. Must get it.



Some of Stina Wirsen´s illustrations reminds me of Helga Henschen´s illustrations.

"printing by hand" is very inspiring, you should check out "lotta prints" too. both are great.

LOVE the grainy gorgeousness of these photos! Love hand printing too :) I'm intrigued by the painting on the silk screen, though... is that a special kind of paint that washes off after you've printed? Please tell! My email is on my profile. Thanks for another beautiful post :) Kylie
