Praise

Vollmer’s comprehensive guide to traditional tools and materials (including an enlightening discussion of Japanese paper), and lucid, illustrated, step-by-step instructions on all aspects of cutting a block and pulling a print make this publication a uniquely invaluable manual and guide. Artists, curators, collectors, gallerists, and Asian art enthusiasts will find this remarkable book indispensible.”
–Roberta Waddell, Retired Curator of Prints, the New York Public Library

“While coalescing a mass of cross-cultural, on-site know-how and vast swaths of creative inspiration from traditionally trained artisans to dynamic contemporary artists, Japanese Woodblock Print Workshop elucidates anew the multilayered world of mokuhanga.”
–Claire Cuccio, PhD, President of the board of the International Mokuhanga Conference

“This is an exemplary, beautiful book with an expansive viewpoint that brings together a clear explanation of the technique with a broad view of its influence, illustrated with work from a wide circle of international contemporary artists, giving its inherent beauty fresh relevance.”
–Karen Kunc, Cather Professor of Art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
