About the book
A collection of work by 22 artists whose delight is to experiment with the vagaries of printmaking, refining their ideas to fit a process, or inventing a process to suit their ideas.
Their images are triggered by encounters with wildlife. They know the habits and habitats of wildlife and respond to it with interpretation full of freshness, imagination and vivacity.
This is a collection of artists from different generations, with varied styles and diverse approaches to making prints, who are all united in taking inspiration from the natural world, from insects to whales and flowers to forests.

‘When I first saw this book I was struck by its size and quality….. a large book and beautifully designed…sewn and bound so it will not break and will withstand years of looking and browsing through-and it is certainly a book that any reader would want to look at time and time again…each artist writes about their work in ways that are personal and always informative. There are also some excellent descriptions about the process of printmaking and their individual working practices…. Beautiful images of the prints accompany the writing and the reproductions are of a very high quality…a real strength of the book is the design which gives the illustrations space to breath on the pages, as illustration after illustration delights and comes together to create a really uplifting and beautiful book’
