Engraving is a multi facetted and fascinating world. I entered that world, a few years ago, through the door of linocut. Wood engraving interests me also, but I never got around to finding enough time to learn the trade. Linocut is enough for me, relatively easy to make, and allows me to illustrate my own texts, those of customers, or others by a few authors I work with.
