Greetings to you all,
"After fivers" already know of my visit to Southwell Minster, Nottinghamshire, when I espied an 11th century bas relief dragon trying to devour Saint Michael.
He has just become my latest woodprint.
Poor old English dragons : they were natural born losers with all those super heros strutting their stuff in the Middle Ages.

My name is Bonnie Primbsch, and I'm a printmaker in Santa Cruz, CA. I do all
sorts of printing, actually, but favor woodblocks. I've dabbled in
moku-honga style, but have done more western-style printing.

I was just introduced to a technique called puzzleblocking, in which
multiple colors can be applied to a print simultaneously. It was either
invented by, or was at least very big with, Edvard Munch. Any of you folks
know about this?

Hello Bonnie,

My Oriental New Years cards for our annual exchange have been puzzle
block prints ... Year of the Sheep, Year of the Monkey, Year of the
Rooster, and Year of the Dog. My plan is to do a complete cycle of
the same basic design. You can see them on the Baren website;
alternatively, I will be happy to email you the images off list.

Personally, I find it a lot of fun. With the right design, I think it
looks quite good. I believe it is more suited to Western style
printmaking, but maybe some of our hanga experts have experimented with it.

Cheers ....... Charles
