Boston: David R. Godine, 2006. Softcover. First Edition. A surprisingly scarce book by master engraver Barry Moser on his craft and art. He is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished wood engraver of his time. His work can be found in collections and libraries around the world and he has won design awards for his remarkable books. In addition to teaching, Moser is the founder of the Pennyroyal Press. This book serves as a primer on the art of wood engraving, a pursuit one can "learn" in less than an hour but can master only through years of persistence, dedication, and tenacity (book flap). To quote Moser, "mastery comes only with time, work, and repetition." In the several chapters of the book he describes his tools, engraving processes, and printing techniques. There are photographs throughout of the subjects discussed along with several of Moser's work. At the end of the book is a gallery of Moser's wood engravings. A white cream softcover book with title and author in black and red on spine and front cover. Moser's illustration of Don Quixote is on the front cover and that of Wisdom from the Book of Proverbs is on the back. Some indication of handling but still in near fine condition. 76 pages plus unpaginated gallery [23 images]. Near Fine.
