Saw the top picture today (whoever that teacher is, you are amazing. Thanks for posting it) and got inspired to make my own, but a small linoleum block version.

Literally none of my students appreciate this joke. I shall nerd-laugh to myself then.

Block Printing | Everything Golden

Long time readers will know how much I love block printing. I think it’s the carving that I enjoy the most - it’s so rewarding seeing your design ‘come to life’ and seeing it printed onto fabric or paper. This DIY is to make napkins but you can print onto anything - you could even block print a repeat pattern onto a plain quilt cover! If you’re not sure about what to design, do a search on google and get inspired. You just might find a new passion!

Egypt, 11th century

Contains ayat al-kursi, among other verses and invocations.

Centuries before block printing was introduced in Europe, the technique was used in the Islamic world to produce miniature texts consisting of prayers, incantations, and Qur'anic verses that were kept in amulet boxes. The text on this amulet is in the angular kufic script. The six-pointed star, a familiar symbol in Islamic art, is usually called “Solomon’s seal.”
