A really interesting blog about woodblock printmaking by artist . The above piece is called “Dorothy Bradford Comes to America.”

Please go look at Mark Hearld‘s other work. He was highlighted in the previous post about woodcut covers for Faber & Faber.

Poet-to-Poet Series by Faber & Faber

Friday, August 13th, 2010

I love woodcut and scratchboard art—here are some beautiful covers designed by Miriam Rosenbloom for Faber & Faber‘s celebration of their 80th year.

From the designer: “I was asked to design a new series for six of Faber’s best-loved poets as part of its 80th birthday celebrations. These particular editions are from Faber’s ‘poet to poet’ series: poems selected by another poet. The brief was to create a set of beautiful hardback books reflecting both Faber’s design history and the richness of its celebrated poetry list. With this wonderful beginning I turned to one of my all-time favourite art forms—printmaking. Faber has a long history of working with some of the best printmakers of the day for its covers, such as Edward Bawden and Edward McKnight Kauffer – this felt like a fantastic opportunity to revisit and revitalise that connection by working with some of the UK’s best contemporary printmakers.”

The artist for the Ted Hughes volume pictured above is Mark Hearld. See all the covers for the series at FaceOut Books’ blog.
