Email for information about this item.


Siri Beckman made her way to Maine in the late 1970s, where she was "called" to wood engraving quite by accident. She has been practicing this art form for over forty years and this volume, featuring more than 100 of her images, is a celebration of her life's work and legacy. Text by Beckman discusses the process of wood engraving and her passion for printmaking and book arts. Carl Little ties her work to place and establishes its place in the canon of Maine art.
