I have a number of out of print, antiquarian books on the subject of wood engraving and other topics that I would like to make available online. Of course the problem is how to do it in a efficient and interesting way.
As an experiment I’m offering John Farleigh’s 1954 book, Engraving on Wood in a virtual book format that allows you to flip the pages back and forth with your mouse.
If this proves to be a viable way to serve these publications I will add more in the future.
Here’s a new addition to my virtual library. It’s a nice 16 page pamphlet published by Dryad Handicrafts back in the fifties I think. Written by Douglas Bliss it serves as a good overview of the wood-engraving process.
You can thumb through the publication by clicking here; Wood-Engraving
I haven’t made it into a flip-book just yet but am working on it. In the meantime I will be publishing each chapter as regular text, starting here.
