Society of Wood Engravers

I recently learned that there is a Society of Wood Engravers; an international group of artists dedicated to creating and sharing relief prints of all types.

As you may know by now, I love when artists continue to practice the antiquated art forms so often usurped by digital techniques. Wood engraving is a rather laborious classic art form, but the results can be beautiful.

Some of the Society’s artists have a truly distinct style.

And sometimes the less elaborate prints have a unique twist.
