Ralph Kiggell's Book


British printshop Old Stile Press defines their mission as "designing, printing by hand and publishing books in editions limited to between 100 and 250 copies. These involve texts, whether new or reprinted, together with suites of wood engravings, woodcuts, linocuts and other relief blocks made by the artist-printmakers with whom we collaborate."

In collaboration with moku hanga artist Ralph Kiggell, Old Stile Press has just published a beautiful book of Chinese poems and woodblock illustrations called Leading the Cranes Home.

The Old Stile web site is full of fun things to explore, including several pages of original prints for sale and a blog.
