Poole (1921-2003) was an English wood-engraver whose style was characterized by delicate details and fine white lines to create a sense of depth. Graham Williams, who printed the wood engravings in Mackley's Monica Poole, is also a wood engraver and fine printer. Here Williams offers a brief treatise on the process of printing wood blocks, and especially the technique that he applied in printing Poole's blocks.
