Book Club: Printing by Hand

This is a really, really lovely book. Textile designer and illustrator, Lena Corwin, walks you through the three primary ways of printing by hand: stamping, stenciling and screen printing. 

Printing by Hand starts with a straight-forward guide to all of the materials that you need to get started, including the different fabrics, inks and paints. It's really well laid out with beautiful photography and really simple step-by-step instructions. Lena has even included a pack of her designs at the back of the book, so you can create stencils and stamps with the minimum of artistic talent! 

From napkins and table cloths, to stationery and soft furnishings, it's impossible not to find something tempting in this book.
