This book is for intermediate level learners and assumes you have a firm grasp of the fundamental mokuhanga carving and printing technique. It introduces a range of carving and printing techniques, half of which extend your skills, and half of which allow you to produce more creative, expressive and contemporary mokuhanga. As well, the book covers sizing washi and other washi preparation, tool sharpening (selected parts of our Sharp Tools book are included) and making hanko. It also includes some inspiring contemporary work from mokuhanga artists with examples of the techniques covered in the book.
