PQL Holiday Giveaway # 2: A Bundle Full of Beautiful Wood Engravings

PQL Holiday Giveaway Week 2

If you follow us at all, you’ll know that we’re pretty stoked about the art of wood engraving. We’ve published a slew of wordless novels celebrating the art form, and we have been known to feature wood engravers in the pages of the Devil’s Artisan, our very own journal of the printing arts.

This week, we’re celebrating the dedication and the attention to detail that go into creating these works of art. As a bonus, we’re also celebrating the publication of our latest issue of DA (issue # 81, the Fall/Winter 2017 issue featuring a number of very cool small presses including Nestlings Press, Pennywise Press, Shanty Bay Press and St. Michael’s College Press). In recognition of all of this, we’re offering one lucky winner a…

    I possibly have the issues in the bundle from my DA subscription, but have two friends recently interested in wood engraving to whom I’d love to pass on a couple of copies each.
