Printing by Hand
Lena is also author of Printing by Hand: A Modern Guide to Printing with Handmade Stamps, Stencils, and Silk Screens. This furniture stenciling project is one of the projects featured in this already very popular book. This book would make a great gift, and I already ordered it for XMAS, yes, for myself.
