The Art of Hand Block Printing

Hand Block Printing

Crafted By Hand

 Scalamandre's new Kelmescott Hand Block Print was discovered in an English archive and is printed using the original wood blocks, which were first cut by hand and printed in July 1924. Composed of 40 separate wood blocks, it requires 80 block impressions just to complete one full yard of printing. The charming scenic design of English country life is freshly interpreted in new colorations for today’s interiors.
