Woodcut by Bryan Nash Gill

Bryan Nash Gill is a Connecticut-based artist who creates relief prints from cross sections of fallen or damaged wood, as well as tree’s burls, knots, and branches. In his book Woodcut, Gill’s large-scale prints are reproduced in a more humble format, on handsome matte-finish paper. The detailed prints are not only mesmerizing, but serve as a recorded history of each tree’s life. As children, we often find trees fascinating, from their grandeur to the science of their rings; in this book, the poignancy of a tree’s story is revisited and honored through the artist’s craft.

In addition to an eloquent introduction by Verlyn Klinkenborg, the book also allows Gill to describe the labor-intensive, often difficult printmaking process he employs.
