Following up the book Woodcut and our box of Woodcut Notecards, comes Woodcut Notebooks. Artist Bryan Nash Gill (1961–2013) combed the woods surrounding his Connecticut studio to find the fallen trees captured in his striking woodcut prints. Each of the prints featured on these colorful notebooks tells a story of forest life through a gnarled and nuanced pattern of arboreal rings. For these notebooks, the rings are printed at a one-to-one scale with the color derived from Bryan’s original woodblock print. Images courtesy of Terrain.
