Printing By Hand

Corwin teases you with all manner of delectable printing techniques.

Lena Corwin’s Printing By Hand is thrilling, and it also contains a secret pocket of patterns seductively tucked inside its back cover. Corwin teases you with all manner of delectable printing techniques—for walls, fabric, even furniture—and the intense yet simple beauty of her projects will leave you breathless. You can almost hear that sticky-icky sound of a paint roller applying ink on glass in the photos where Corwin shows you how to print your own gift wrap, and even if you’d never bedeck your own bed linens in red and pink botanical prints, it’s an idea so sublime, it can keep you awake at night.
