Woodcuts

Last week a friend gave me a beautiful card with a woodcut bird on it by the artist Agnes Miller Parker. I have always loved the definitive lines of woodcut prints, and the care involved in carving the blocks. There are some artists still using this method; the above are a round up of Etsy and Folksy finds.

1. Daffodils 2. Song Sparrow 3. The Doorway 4. Not Digital 5. Early Spring 6. Bracing

I have a serious soft spot for woodcuts. That one of the trees is calling to me. I might be more likely to indulge if I didn't already feel guilty about my stash of lovely woodcuts waiting to be framed and hung.
