This is a short intro to relief and letterpress printing where students will design, carve, and letterpress their own "Ex Libris" (latin - from the books/library) or book plate. The illustrations you create and carve using relief carving techniques will have a space left for students to letterpress or hand write "Ex Libris" and/or a name. The students learn valuable designs, illustrations, and carving techniques in addition to how to set simple text and measure out placement based upon their image.
