A Block Print a Day

        I got looking at assorted relief block prints of apples, and decided to spread them out for you, one a day for your good health.  I hope you enjoy the wide range of styles and techniques.
        I begin with this most traditional wood block print, in the style of those utilitarian Victorian pictures made for illustration.  It’s beautifully done - precise, accurate… dare I say a little boring?  Perhaps, but I do like the way the lines create the shape and give it three-dimensionality.
