J. J. Lankes
A Woodcut Manual
The best book ever written about the art of woodcuts is back in print! This handsome new limited edition augments the original J. J. Lankes text with selections from his letters and miscellaneous writings to reveal the rich and multidimensional talents of an American master. With an introduction and commentary by Welford Dunaway Taylor plus dozens of woodcuts and decorations by Lankes, this book leaves no doubt about the truth of Robert Frost’s assessment: “No man ever dug a better thing out of wood.”
A noted American woodcut artist, J. J. Lankes provided illustrations for various authors including Robert Frost and Sherwood Anderson. He served as visiting professor at Wells College. Among his many publications is A Woodcut Manual (1932).
