Macnab Instruction

It took awhile but I’ve posted all of the text from Iain Macnab’s book called The Student’s Book of Wood-Engraving published in 1938.

I’ve included some wood engraving illustrations found in the book as well.

Scottish artist Ian Macnab was the founder and principal of the famous Grosvenor School of Modern Art and was best known for his highly accomplished wood engravings and clean style. Most notably are his engravings of warm mediterranean landscapes.

Thanks so much for posting this. I have several how-to books on wood engraving but always find something new in each one I read. This is a wonderful service for those without access to libraries or all-inclusive bookstores.
