Japanese Prints are a wonderful artform that depicted life in Japan and made art more affordable to the average person.
While reading about an American woodcut artist, I came across an ebook that was written by F. Morley Fletcher that describes in great detail the whole process of how to create the watercolor woodcut print from start to finish. There are a number of examples of prints in the book as well as hand drawn illustrations of the many tools and methods that are used.
Although the book was created in 1916, it is well written and very concise with regards to the materials, and the processes the artist must go through in order to complete a series of satisfactory prints.
You can read the contents of the entire ebook below or you can download the entire book for free from the Gutenberg Project location.
