Woodblock Prints: Books

I am interested in books illustrated with woodcuts such as Gustave Baumann's Frijoles Canyon Pictographs (1939) and other books that are generally pencil┬Ěsigned and of limited edition. I am not interested in books illustrated by Lynd Ward.

Reference Books: I am interested in any books by woodcut artists up to 1960 that are of "how-to" nature and list or picture prints by the artist/author. I am also interested in exhibition catalogs listing woodcuts and artists. I am also buying any reference books from the period c. 1895-1960 that talk about and picture woodblock prints. The Studio published books on woodcuts in the 1920's and 30's. There were "woodcut annuals" published in the 1920's and books were written by such authors as Malcolm Salaman and Herbert Furst. In addition, I am looking for the following specific titles by Charles W. Smith:

  • Abstractions (1939)
  • Experiments in Relief Printing (1954)
