Block-printed wallpaper gallery

Block-printing is a method of relief printing by hand, from flat blocks that were traditionally made from wood.

These blocks are typically constructed with a thin facing layer of fruitwood into which the pattern is carved, and which is re-inforced by backing layers of softwood. As well as carving, the design can also be built up from metal pins and shaped pieces of metal hammered into the surface of the block and packed with felt. Separate blocks are normally used for each colour.

If you have an photograph that would fit in this gallery and you would allow us to publish it we would be interested in seeing it. Click here to send it to us for review.
