Printing By Hand
By Lena Corwin

Corwin has given us that guide. Using step-by-step instructions and up-close photos, Corwin teaches crafters everything they need to know to master stamping, stencilling, and screen printing, from making their own printing devices to trouble-shooting when plans go awry.
